Scholarships for Hispanic Students

Financial need should never limit a student’s ambitions.
Founded in 1975, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) empowers Latino families with the knowledge and resources to successfully complete higher education, while providing scholarships and support services to as many exceptional Hispanic American students as possible.
As the nation’s largest not-for-profit organization supporting Hispanic American higher education, HSF has awarded more than $550 million in scholarships and provides a range of impactful programs for students, HSF scholars, alumni, and parents.
The application opens January 1, 2018, and closes March 31, 2018. Scholarship recipients will be selected in June 2018. For more information visit hsf.net.
For details about the College Board’s other scholarship partners connected to the PSAT/NMSQT® and PSAT™ 10, please see our scholarships page.
