Hispanic Scholarship Fund

***Disclosure - This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers. All opinions are 100% mine. 

Did you know that Hispanics account for 19% of all college students, ages 18-24? That’s a major increase, up from 12% in 2008. What’s more, 69% of Hispanic graduates are now going directly to college after graduating high school, a rate that is higher than that of the general population.

But the surge in Hispanic college-bound students presents a greater need for more information about college and financial support. As all parents that have college bound students can attest, navigating the application process can be daunting.

We parents play a critical role in helping our children navigate the college application process and access the resources and support needed to excel in college and beyond. 

We parents are the support system that our kids need to get to and through college, but parents need support and encouragement too.

My oldest will be in high school before I know it and I feel rested assured that I know what I need to do to begin the scholarship process. That's one of the many reasons why I was so interested in learning more about the Hispanic Scholarship Fund and wanted to share this campaign with others.

Their website makes it easy to get through the application process.
