Scholarships for Hispanic
A majority of college/university students obtain some sort of financial aid to support themselves through school. Without financial aid, they may not be able to study beyond high school. Financial aid can be broadly divided into two categories: that which needs to be repaid and that which is a gift, with scholarships qualifying as the latter. Notably, scholarships are mostly merit-based and students need to fulfill certain eligibility criteria to apply for them.
There are many types of scholarships. Some are open for all to apply, while others are reserved for certain demographic groups, which promotes diversity.
- Be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate or graduate student in a U.S. accredited college or university in the U.S., Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, or Puerto Rico.
- Have filled out the FAFSA application.
- Either be pursuing or planning to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree.
- Be a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident.
- Have a certain cumulative GPA on a scale of 4.0.
