Scholarships for Latin American / South American / Hispanics

While some scholarships are awarded based on a particular course of study or academic successes, others recognize students' cultural or ethnic heritage. As such, there are a wide variety of scholarships available to students of Latin American, South American and Hispanic heritage. Some of these scholarships are open to members of many minority groups, while others are specifically for Latin American or South American students. Other requirements may apply, such as attaining a certain GPA, pursuing a specific course of study or having a financial need. Applications for many of these scholarships require potential recipients to provide academic transcripts, complete federal financial aid forms and to complete a personal essay on a provided topic.
