Hispanic Grants and Scholarships for College

Equal access to education is essential for the success of our society, and Hispanic scholarships and student grants help make sure that all deserving students have the opportunity to pursue their goals.

Hispanic grants and scholarships are specifically set aside for students and potential students of Hispanic descent. These grants are sourced in several different ways, and they have different qualifications for eligibility, depending on the purpose and goals of the funding organization.

Types of Hispanic Student Grants

There are many different types of student grants for Hispanic students. Some are specific to certain career choices. For example, Hispanic communities are often underrepresented in medicine and health care, so students pursuing these areas may be eligible for grants dedicated to that specific purpose.

Other student grant opportunities come directly from colleges and universities. Many of these universities do not have student bodies that accurately reflect the diversity of the larger population. They may offer specific student grants and scholarship assistance to make their schools more lucrative to college-bound minority students.

Still other student grants are aimed at students who face other challenges. For example, the “My First My Family” fund supports Hispanic students who are financially disadvantaged and are the first in their family to attend college.

Even when applying for Hispanic-specific student grants, it’s still a very good idea to apply for the federal Pell grants as well. These grants rarely conflict with one another, so in most cases, students can receive some level of aid based on financial need in addition to other grants specific to background, career path, and other factors.

Where To Find Student Grants For Hispanic Students

As mentioned above, one place to look for funding is through the individual institution where you plan to attend. For industry- or background-specific students’ grant opportunities, contact the Congressional Hispanic caucus Institute, which maintains a comprehensive list of the various Hispanic student grants available.
