Latinos are far more likely to be enrolled in two-year colleges than any other group and are more likely to be part-time students. This is partly due to the financial hardships many students face in paying for college. The scholarships listed below will undoubtedly help many high school students afford a college education, while assisting current college students finish their degree. By putting together these lists of scholarships, we want to assure you that there is financial assistance available to you to pursue a higher education. Apart from CHCI's Scholarship Awards Program, there are hundreds of national scholarships available to all students attending, or planning to attend, any school in the United States.
The regional scholarships listed below are for students attending certain colleges or who live in certain localities. For students who are not U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, please visit the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund's web site at www.maldef.org for a listing of several scholarships just for you.
