Latina/o Scholarship Opportunities

The siempre estimable Tomas Rivera Policy Institute has released a new report documenting the uneven availability of scholarships for Latina/o students. “The study finds that although a tremendous amount of online scholarship information exists for Latino students, the information is widely varied, often outdated, and not actively disseminated to the communities who need it most.”

So the committee report, “College Scholarships for Latino Students: Are Opportunities Being Missed?” is available here, and even better, they created a new online gateway for Latina/o students to find out about scholarship opportunities – see (opens in new window). The same info is also available in a pdf directory, available here.
