Reviews for Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF)

Rating: 5 stars  

HSF is an amazing organization that helps Hispanic students around the country and I have been honored to be one of those students. They have truly changed my life. I wouldn't have been able to afford going to college if it wasn't for their generosity and the countless donors that help students by providing the scholars with scholarships and other types of resources such as internship opportunities and networking events. HSF truly wants students to succeed and have gone above and beyond to make their dreams into reality.

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund is a great organization dedicated to help Hispanic students succeed in college. I never imagined that HSF would invest so much in me. They have helped me with mentorship, career planning, guidance, and scholarship. Everyone is extremely dedicated and willing to help at any time.

Many organizations provide scholarships, but hardly any provide awardees with a strong network of support. Thank you HSF and donors!!!

HSF has played a vital role in my education and without their professional, academic, and professional support I would not be where I am today.

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund's active dedication to equity in access to higher education is something I admire. Through programs such as College Camp, LUNA receptions, and Mentor Match, the organization is able to offer much more than just monetary assistance, instead, they go above and beyond by providing opportunities for all Latinos to be involved in the betterment of our families and communities. With their leadership, our communities will have students, mentors, and allies they can look up to and seek for help.

As a HSF National Leadership Conference alumni, I am a fortunate and proud part of HSF's vision.
