$2000 LULAC Scholarship for Hispanic Students starting college- Deadline 3/1/12

February 6, 2013

LULAC National Scholarship Fund

LNESC and LULAC established the LNSF to help youth in underserved communities make the dream of college enrollment a reality. LNSF is a unique partnership between grassroots advocates and corporations to fund educational opportunities for deserving youth across the U.S. Every dollar raised by local LULAC Councils is matched by corporate partners secured by LNESC to increase the amount given in both the council and corporation’s name. This model results in a true grassroots/corporate partnership for the empowerment of the Latino community. Former recipients of LNSF scholarships are now leaders in fields of business, science, government, and education.

A rigorous selection process assures the expectation that future recipients will demonstrate the same level of excellence.
