Established in 1975, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund allows Latino families with the knowledge and resources required to successfully complete higher education and offers scholarships and support services to as many extraordinary Hispanic American students as possible. It aims to make college education a top priority for every Latino family across the nation, mobilizing our community to proactively advance that goal—each individual, over a lifetime, in every way they can. HSF also pursues to give its Scholars all the tools they need to do well in their course work, graduate, enter, and excel in a profession, help lead our nation going forward, and guide the generations to come.
