Remezcla External Scholarships Database
Between 1993 and 2014, the enrollment of Latinos in college rose substantially. In 1993, only 22 percent of Latinos aged 18 to 24 attended either a two- or four-year college, according to Pew. By 2014, the number jumped to 35 percent, which accounted for about 2.3 million Latino students. And while enrollment for Latinos continues to grow, the cost of higher education can still prevent some from attending college – or it may push others into taking on onerous loans.
By now, many scholarship deadlines have come and gone, but we found eight specifically meant for Latino students that may provide a little bit of relief in the upcoming school year.
