Did you know that Coca Cola and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund are offering $200,000 in scholarships to college bound Hispanic seniors to help close the college attainment gap among Latino students.
The Hispanic Scholarship Fund was founded in 1975. HSF provides internships, mentoring opportunities and connects scholars with other organizations. Each year HSF awards 150 types of scholarships and has administered over $400 million dollars in scholarships. I had the honor of attending the Leaders in Educating Awards earlier this year and met students and Hispanic Scholarship program alumni that have been helped by HSF Scholarships.
As part of the HSF & Coca-Cola “Share Possibilities/Comparte Possibilidades” Scholarship program, the grand prize winner will receive $20,000. Four students will be awarded $10,000 and sixteen will receive $2,500.

Where to Apply:
Students are encouraged to share their profiles and gain community votes. Each eligible participating voter is automatically entered for a chance to win a $500 gift card and can vote up to five times a day.
HSF will select the scholarship recipients based on the Fund’s standard selection criteria for awarding scholarships, factoring in community votes gathered online. Final winners will be announced by May 2014. Official rules can be found here.
Make sure to apply for the scholarships if you are a college bound Hispanic student or forward the information to someone you know who is a potential candidate.
