You will receive an email towards the end of August 2020 to know the status of your application.
What are you looking for in an applicant?

Is this scholarship renewable?
Can these scholarships be used for any major?
Do I have to be Hispanic or Latinx to apply?
Are there any restrictions on the type of school I’ll be attending in the Fall? Is this only for students enrolling full-time at a four year university?
There are currently no restrictions on the institutions a student may attend. You are eligible for a scholarship as long as you are attending an accredited institution for at least part-time.

What do you consider a first generation college student?
A first-generation student means neither of your parent(s) completed their bachelor's degree. You can still be first-generation if your older siblings went to college.
