|PACO announces expanded Scholarship program
Founded in 1975, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to Latino students, as well as related support services. HSF seeks to give students all the tools they need to apply to college, do well in their course work, graduate, enter a profession, excel, help lead our nation going forward, and mentor the generations to come.
As the nation’s largest not-for-profit organization supporting Hispanic American higher education, HSF has awarded over $470 million in scholarships and provides a range of ancillary programs for candidates, scholars, and their families.
HSF further strives to make college education a top priority for every Latino family across the nation and to mobilize our community to proactively advance that goal – each individual, over a lifetime, in every way he/she can.
