Cougar News Staff
The Hispanic Scholarship Fund, the largest Hispanic scholarship-granting organization in the United States, is accepting applications from Hispanic and part-Hispanic students for awards ranging in value from $1,000 to $3,000.
The HSF recognizes the academic achievements of students throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, having awarded more than 40,000 scholarships totaling some $47 million since 1975.
To be eligible for the scholarships, students must be at least half-Hispanic U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are enrolled full-time in an accredited college (at least 12 credits per semester for undergraduate students or six credits for graduate students) during the regular academic year.
They must have earned at least 15 credits from an accredited college in the United States or Puerto Rico and must have a minimum grade point average of 2.7 on a 4-point scale.
Applications for the awards may be downloaded from www.hsf.net or by sending a self-addressed, stamped long business envelope to: Selection Committee, General Scholarship Application, Hispanic Scholarship Fund, One Sansome St. Suite 1000, San Francisco, CA, 94104.
