The awards are sponsored by the Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF), a non-profit organization established in 1987 by the White House. The foundation identifies, inspires, prepares and positions Latino student leaders in the classroom, community and workforce to meet America’s priorities and challenges.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in OCTOBER of each year, and the award amount is usually $1,000 - $3,000.
