Mission Statement

To double the rate of Hispanics earning college degrees to 18 percent by 2010.

Description

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) is the nation's leading organization supporting Hispanic higher education. HSF was founded in 1975 with a vision of strengthening the country by advancing college education among Hispanic Americans-the largest minority segment of the U.S. population. In support of its mission to double the rate of Hispanics earning college degrees, HSF provides the Latino community with more college scholarships and educational outreach support than any other organization in the country. Headquartered in San Francisco, HSF has opened regional offices in Southern California, the Southwest, the Southeast, the Northeast and the Midwest. In addition, HSF launched the Washington, D.C.-based Hispanic Scholarship Fund Institute to create public partnerships in support of its work. During its 31-year history, HSF has awarded more than 78,000 scholarships totaling $195 million to Latinos from all 50 states, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam. HSF scholars have attended more than 1,700 colleges and universities.
