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!
