Hispanic Student Scholarships

Colleges across the U.S. are prioritizing diversity and representation because it is important for alleviating inequality in the country. For example, did you know that Hispanics/Latinos make up almost 20% of the U.S. population but only about 1 in 5, just 20%, of Hispanic/Latino people hold a college degree? That’s why organizations and businesses offer scholarships based on race or ethnicity, with the aim of helping students from minority groups access a good college education. To be eligible for Hispanic scholarships you must be of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American descent/origin. Often, the line between Hispanic and Latino is blurred and the scholarships can usually apply to both of these groups. Our Scholaroo database has more than 100 different scholarships for Hispanic and Latino students.

How to win scholarships for Hispanic and Latino students

These scholarships are often meant to supplement federal aid so ensure that you’ve filed for Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA. This will also help organizers determine whether you are eligible – financial need is usually an eligibility requirement and qualifying for federal aid is a way to prove that you need assistance. Read the tips we’ve provided on each of the scholarships to ensure you nail your application.

Something that we strongly recommend that you plan your essay. Most scholarship applications ask for an essay – either on a provided topic or a motivational essay in which you explain why you deserve the scholarship based on your goals for the future. We have an article on How To Write a Scholarship Essay that goes into more detail. We advise you to write multiple drafts and have others read them before you submit them. It’s also very important that you stick to the word count — anything significantly over or under will likely be disqualified. Take your time, and don’t rush the writing process because you need to submit your best work.

Scholarships for Hispanic women and Latinas

There are at least 9 different scholarships that are specifically for Hispanic women and Latinas on Scholaroo. The award amounts range from the $1,000 Ashton Washington Women of Color Annual Scholarship to the $15,000 Mission North The Future Is... Fellowship. The areas of study range from engineering and science to public relations and technology.

If those don’t fit your needs, head to our Scholarships for Women page — there are almost 100 scholarships listed so you’re likely to find something. If you’re looking to pursue a specific degree program, head to our College Majors page and search through the various majors. We’ve introduced search filters too to help make the search even easier, so use them to narrow down the search to scholarships that are valuable to you.
