Get the Money You Need!


What are scholarships?
Scholarships are free money available to off-set the cost of school. Students have to apply for scholarships, which are awarded on a case-by-case basis, often based on merit. If a student receives a scholarship, it does not have to be paid back.

Do you need to be a citizen or legal permanent resident to qualify for a scholarship?


Some scholarships require proof of citizenship or residency in order to qualify for a scholarship, but others do not. Throughout this guide, scholarships marked with the icon require some kind of residency requirement. Scholarships marked with the icon do not. Both types of scholarships are listed separately in the back of this directory.

What do you need to have to qualify for a scholarship?


Every scholarship in the following pages has varying requirements including its own application, which you will need to get and complete but it is a good idea to pull together a folder of the following information (or as much of it as you can), as almost all scholarships will ask for some combination of these things: Letter(s) of reference Writing sample Resume Official transcripts One or two essays Copy of Student Aid Report (SAR - see below) Parent and Student Tax Returns and W-2 Forms GPA Certification Form Enrollment Verification Form Copy of Financial Award Letter

Where can you get more printed information about paying for college?
Call the federal government for a free guide, in English or in Spanish, to student financial aid: 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243). It also is available online at www.studentaid.ed.gov, a website offered in both English and Spanish. This guide is an excellent comprehensive how to resource. Additional free resources on planning and paying for college can be downloaded from The Sallie Mae Fund website, www.thesalliemaefund.org. The site includes toolkits, checklists, and more in Spanish and in English.

Are you entering college next year? Complete the FAFSA as soon as possible!
If you do nothing else, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), immediately after January 1 of your senior year of high school and every year thereafter you intend to continue your college education. It is a form used by most schools to determine financial aid, and money is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. After you submit your FAFSA, you will be sent a Student Aid Report (SAR), which tells how much money your family is expected to contribute to your college education for one year. This helps schools and scholarship organizations know how much money you will need in financial aid.

Beware of scholarship scams.


Be wary of scholarship applications that require an application fee. Also proceed with caution with scholarship matching services that guarantee results and sales pitches that describe themselves as financial aid workshops or seminars.

PADRES: ayuden a sus hijos a obtener el dinero que necesitan para asistir la universidad!
Qu son las becas?
Las becas ofrecen dinero gratuito para cubrir el costo educativo. El estudiante slo tiene que solicitar la beca, lo cual se concede dependiendo de cada caso y, a menudo, por mrito de calificaciones. Si un estudiante recibe una beca, no tiene que devolver el dinero.

Se necesita ser ciudadano o residente permanente legal para poder obtener una beca?
Algunas becas requieren prueba de ciudadana o residencia para poder calificar por becas, pero otras no. A travs de este directorio, las becas marcadas con el smbolo requieren ciertos requisitos con respecto a la residencia. Las becas marcadas con el smbolo no tienen requisitos. Ambos tipos de becas se encuentran en la parte posterior de este directorio.

Qu necesitas tener para obtener una beca?


Todas las becas que se incluyen en las siguientes pginas tienen distintos requisitos, incluso su propia solicitud, el cual deber obtener y completar.

Dnde se puede obtener ms informacin sobre el pago de la educacin universitaria?


Llame al gobierno federal para obtener una gua gratuita, en ingls o en espaol, sobre ayuda financiera estudiantil: 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243). sta gua es un recurso excelente que detalla cmo solicitar ayuda. The Sallie Mae Fund tiene una variedad de recursos educacionales gratuitos, en ingls y en espaol, en como preparar y pagar por la universidad. Puede bajar en su computadora los materiales o imprimir una forma a www.salliemaefund.org.

Su hijo o hija ingresa a la universidad el ao prximo? Complete la solicitud gratuita de ayuda estudiantil federal (FAFSA) lo ms pronto posible.
Si no realiza nada ms, complete la solicitud gratuita inmediatamente despus del 1 de enero del ltimo ao de preparatoria y cada ao despus si piensa continuar la educacin universitaria.

Esto ayuda a las escuelas y organizaciones de becas a determinar cul ser la ayuda financiera que necesitar.

Cuidado con las estafas relacionadas con las becas


Tenga cuidado con las becas que requieren un honorario de solicitud. Asimismo, no se deje engaar por servicios de bsqueda de becas que garantizan resultados ni por aquellos que se describen a si mismos como talleres o seminarios de ayuda financiera.

About this directory


This directory contains all organizations in the United States identified by the Toms Rivera Policy Institute (TRPI) that award grants and scholarships specifically targeting Latino students. Additionally, TRPI has included the largest national organizations (in total dollars awarded) that grant scholarships for which Latino students may qualify. To be included in this guide, scholarship programs must have current, accessible contact and application information. They must specifically target Latino students in their award criteria. Exceptions include the largest national donors, migrant farm worker scholarships that often award their monies to Latinos, and scholarships making an effort to attract Latino students, such as by reserving awards for minorities. Excluded from the guide are scholarships requiring acceptance into a particular institution, fellowships without scholarship money, and awards designed only for dependents of employees at a specific organization. TRPI acknowledges that new scholarship opportunities geared for Latino students are becoming available on a continual basis, and the institute urges readers to submit new scholarship listings or corrections to TRPI. TRPI also encourages students to check for scholarships from colleges or universities they are attending, as they may offer institution-specific scholarships. Other considerations when using this guide: If the GPA requirement of a scholarship is listed N/A, academic achievement still may be a consideration. Also bear in mind that generally students will have to meet some minimum requirements to renew and retain any awards. It will become clear during the application process if a scholarship is renewable and how to renew it. Finally, students should be aware of potential changes in sponsors, deadlines, or criteria by confirming scholarships early in the application process with the sponsoring organizations either online, on the telephone, or in the mail.

Developing this directory


TRPI is proud to expand this popular guide for Latino high school, undergraduate, and graduate students in the United States. The original project was born of a 2005 TRPI regional study that identified all the organizations in Southern California where Southern California Latino students and parents could receive information about or apply for college scholarships and grants. Among the outcomes of the study was a recommendation for organizations to actively disseminate hard copies of online data, as the online scholarship search process was found to be time-consuming and complicated. The TRPI study also found that the difficulties of online scholarship searches were compounded by the reality that many Latino households do not have Internet access. Any online search is likely to be undertaken at a library or school, where time on a shared computer is limited. In 2006, in response to these findings, TRPI released its first printed scholarship directory which offered scholarships specifically for California Latino students. Extraordinary demand for that guide inspired the institute and its sponsors to bring the project to a national level. This year, TRPI is pleased to offer a nationwide guide to help Latino students across the country apply for the money they need and deserve in the face of increasing costs of higher education. It should be noted that, while TRPI researchers recognized that there would be value including all organizations to which students could apply for scholarships in the United States, such an undertaking was beyond

the scope of the project.
