Hispanic Grants

Hispanic Grants

Opportunities for the fastest growing minority group in the U.S. are plentiful. More focus has been placed on special need grants being available to every qualifying Latin American student.

Currently, there are many grants in place for Hispanics to achieve their educational goals, some tailored to a specific region while others, such as the Pell Grant, are available to everyone.

In the states of Texas, California, Florida, New York, and New Jersey, and also in the U.S. territory Puerto Rico, there are institutions that are at least a quarter Hispanic out of the total student body. These colleges are eligible for federal funding in which the schools receive and distribute as grants, of which some are tailored appropriately.

"The best way to make new friends is to take a chance and go out there. Don't judge. Put yourself in their shoes. Ask question. You will gain a new way of thinking and, perhaps, a new friend."
