The College Scholarship Porgram was created to advance college education for underserved Hispanic students in Miami-Dade County. With college tuition and related costs escalating, the financial resources needed to obtain a college education constitute the most serious challenge for these youth.
Since the inception of the program in 1987, the Foundation has awarded over $1.5 million to applicants of the scholarship.
Applicants must meet the following requirements to apply for a scholarship:
Be a U.S. citizen or legal pemanent resident
Be of Hispanic heritage
Reside in Miami-Dade County
Demonstrate financial hardship
- Have a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA
- Enroll in college as a full time student with a minimum of 12 semester hours
