The Fiesta de Golf Scholarship Challenge raises awareness and supports CHCI’s scholarship program by increasing opportunities for Latino youth to attend and complete higher education.
In addition to providing critical financial assistance to young Latinos for post-secondary education pursuits, CHCI's scholarship program also supports a national initiative to reach a 60 percent college graduation rate by 2030.The event helps fund CHCI's Scholarship Program which, to date, has provided more than 1,100 scholarships and invested more than $4.1 million in the Latino community so that young Latinos can pursue their dreams of a college education. In 2011, CHCI awarded 175 scholarships totaling $413,500, thanks to the generous contributions of our tournament partners and other CHCI donors.
CHCI also sends special thanks to all of our celebrity guests who participated in this year's Fiesta de Golf Scholarhip Challenge. Your time and efforts demonstrate your committment to the educational attainment of Latino youth.
