League of United Latin American Citizens National Scholarship Fund

Description: 

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) established this fund to help young Latin American students in underserved communities achieve their dreams of attending college. The fund represents a unique partnership between grassroots advocates and corporations to fund educational opportunities for deserving youth across the United States: corporate partners match every dollar raised by local LULAC Councils. Former recipients of LNSF scholarships are now leaders in fields of business, science, government, and education.
