Hispanic Scholarship Fund


The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) is the nation’s leading organization supporting Hispanic higher education. Founded in 1975 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, HSF’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. In its 32-year history, HSF has awarded more than 82,000 scholarships worth more than $221 million to Latinos from all 50 states, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands attending nearly 2,000 colleges and universities.

Applicants must be residents of the U.S. who are eligible for Federal Student Aid (as defined by the FSA: generally U.S. citizens, permanent legal residents, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival, or eligible non-citizen) of Hispanic heritage with a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 (or equivalent) scale for a minimum of 9 units/credits earned. Applicants must also apply for Federal Financial Aid using the FAFSA.
