CHCI's Scholarship Program provides critical financial assistance to Latino students for post-secondary education. Because college completion for young Latinos is imperative to maintaining the U.S. economic competitiveness and ensuring that our country's future workforce is prepared, CHCI is proud to offer scholarships to Latino students who have a history of performing public service-oriented activities in their communities and who demonstrate a desire to continue their civic engagement in the future. CHCI's Scholarship Program also supports the national education initiative to increase college graduation rates to 60 percent by 2030.
Since its inception, CHCI’s scholarship program has invested nearly $4.1 million in the Latino community, thanks to generous support from donors and revenue from the Fiesta de Golf Scholarship Challenge.
CHCI scholarships provide recipients with a one time scholarship of:
- $1,000 community college or AA/AS granting institution
- $2,500 4-year academic institution
- $5,000 graduate-level institution
Scholarship awards are intended to provide assistance with tuition, room and board, textbooks, and other educational expenses associated with college enrollment.
