The Hispanic Scholarship Fund, the nation’s largest provider of college financial aid for Latino students offers a variety of merit-based scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students. Founded in 1975, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund believes that the country prospers when all Americans have access to the opportunities a college education can afford. As the nation’s leading Hispanic higher education fund, HSF works to address the financial and cultural barriers that keep many Latinos from earning a college degree.
