The LULAC National Educational Service Centers (LNESC) and Macy’s will award up to $500 in scholarships to students from California, Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Puerto Rico, or Texas that are facing financial hardship through the Macy’s Emergency Scholarship Fund. The joint partnership between LNESC & Macy’s provides financial resources to full-time undergraduate or graduate students in the U.S. and Puerto Rico facing economic hardship and immediate monetary need that, if not met, could result in an inability to complete classes or a degree program.
Emergency financial need resulting from the following will qualify students for funding:
- Change in family income/support
- Loss of job
- Death of an immediate family member
- Natural disaster
- Pending eviction or home foreclosure
To be eligible to apply, students must meet the following requirements:
- Must be a resident of California, Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Puerto Rico, or Texas
- Must be enrolled full-time in an accredited college or university and in good standing
- Must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale or the equivalent
