The Hispanic Scholarship Fund

The National Commission for Cooperative Education is proud to assist and promote the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF), the nation's leading organization supporting Hispanic higher education.  Founded in 1975 as a 501 (c)  (3) not-for-profit organization, HFS's vision is to strengthen the country by advancing college education among Hispanic Americans.  In support of its mission to double the rate of Hispanics earning college degrees.  HSF provides the Latino community more college scholarships and educational outreach support than any other organization in the country.  HSF scholarship opportunities are available to graduating high school seniors who plan to enroll in college, community college students to plan to transfer to a four-year college or university, currently enrolled college students, and graduate professional students.  Students must be of Hispanic heritage, be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.00 on a 4.00 scale (or the equivalent) and apply for federal financing aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
