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.
Deadlines vary by scholarship. Please see website.
