Welcome to the
Hispanic Scholarship Fund
We are the nation's largest not-for-profit organization supporting Hispanic higher education. Founded in 1975, HSF provides American families with the financial and educational resources they need to achieve a college education and help America remain globally competitive.
Our mission is to increase the number of Hispanic college graduates by providing scholarships and assistance to students and their families. We envision a future when every Hispanic household benefits from someone in the family with a college degree, creating an enduring impact for generations to come.
HSF is recognized as one of the best-managed charitable organizations in the U.S. We have a long track record of transparency, efficient fund distribution, and proven results.
The National College Gap
America needs more college graduates to fill the job demands of the future and continue being America. Overall only 13% of hispanics have a 4-year college degree and 19% a 2-year degree or higher.
To restore America's lead in the world we need to increase Hispanic college graduation from 19% to 60% by the year 2025. We need 14 million more Hispanic graduates.
See why Hispanic higher education is a national priority, and how we are making lasting impacts with our Generation 1st Degree initiative.
