North Carolina Hispanic College Fund


Scholarship Value: $7,000
Awards Available: 45

The NCSHP established this charitable fund at Triangle Community Foundation to benefit Hispanic students in North Carolina.

The North Carolina Hispanic College Fund awards annual scholarships worth between $500 and $2,500 to help students who desire to attend college pay for their education. Scholarships recipients are recent graduates of North Carolina high schools who are of Hispanic/Latino background. Recipients of a NC Hispanic College Fund scholarship must enroll in a degree program at a community college or a 2 or 4 year college/university and be committed to public service and community development.
