Two scholarships are offered: the National Scholarship, and the Dream Scholarship. Both scholarships are for exceptional Latino students who have demonstrated exceptional leadership during their college years and have also been active in improving or supporting the Latino/Hispanic community.
The La Unidad Latina Foundation was established in 1999 to serve as an independent, non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to financially supporting educational achievement and civic empowerment in the Latino community.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in OCTOBER of each year, and the award amount is usually $500 - $1,000.
