About the Author

Siege Media

Going to college is an exciting prospect, yet it can be daunting when crunching the numbers and trying to navigate finances — especially for Latinx and Hispanic students.

Hispanic students are defined as students who speak Spanish or are descended from a Spanish-speaking lineage, while Latinx students are defined as those directly descended from people from Latin America. While more Latinx and Hispanic students are entering higher education institutions — 36% of Latinx people aged 18-24 enrolled in college in 2017 — financial struggles can make it hard for these students to complete their degrees.

The average familial income for Latinx students is significantly lower than most other racial groups, leaving these students to seek aid elsewhere. Read on for a list of scholarships offered to Latinx and Hispanic populations.
