League of United Latin American Citizens National Educational Service Centers Scholarship Programs

Website: League of United Latin American Citizens


The cost of higher education is constantly on the rise, making financing a college degree extremely difficult for many families. This is particularly true of the Latino community. In fact, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, 77% of Latinos say that the cost of education is a key reason why they do not go to college or fail to finish once they have started. In effort to close the academic achievement gap, LNESC partners with corporations and grassroots organizations to provide high-need students with scholarship dollars.

LNESC provides a number of important scholarship opportunities, which include awards that range in award amount and have varying eligibility criteria. Some scholarships are available to all post-secondary students regardless of major while others are available to students pursuing specific degrees.
