RMHC/HACER Hispanic Scholarship

by Migdalia Rivera

Graduation Cap & Diploma
With a teen preparing to go to college, I am constantly on the lookout for scholarships.

Recently, I received information about the RMHC/HACER Hispanic Scholarship. Since 1985, with the support of McDonald’s the RMHC/HACER Scholarship Program has awarded more than $21 million and since 2008 McDonald’s has awarded four $100,000 national scholarships. Today, RMHC/HACER is one of the country’s largest college scholarship programs for graduating Hispanic high school students, providing awards ranging from $1,000 to $100,000 per student annually.

To be eligible for this scholarship, a student must have at least one parent of Hispanic heritage. Below I have also noted several other requirements.

  • Be a high school senior.
  • Be a legal U.S. resident.
  • Be younger than 21 years old.
  • Carry a minimum 2.7 GPA.
  • Be eligible to attend a two- or four-year college or university with a full course of study.
  • Plan to enroll at an accredited post-secondary education institution during the academic year following their graduation.

Note, the application and required supporting materials and documentation must be postmarked  no later than January 27, 2012 so avansa/hurry!

If you can’t use this information yourself, please take the time to share it with your family, friends, and followers.  Together we can ensure more of our children receive a higher education!

¡Abrazos! / Hugs!
