6 College Scholarships Latinos Should Apply To Right Now

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, with about 2.3 million Latino students, the number jumped to 35 percent. 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.
Though the spring semester has just begun, it’s never too early to start thinking about summer and fall. That’s why we put together a list of scholarships meant to provide some relief for Latino students. Jot down these deadlines on your calendar.
