Dear HFSV Friend, I am excited to welcome the newest cohort of the Latinos in Technology Scholarship. 53% of this year’s scholars are Latinas and 57% are community college transfer students. To date, we have awarded 427 college scholarships! You can take a glimpse into our scholars’ lives by watching our Latinx Scholar Chats.
I am also pleased to announce that our third Latino Board Leadership Academy of the year was launched on August 4th. This is Class XIX and the first time ever we have three academies in one year.
The Hispanic Foundation Celebration is just two months away. I am thrilled to announce that to date we have received 19 sponsorships. As a reminder, this year’s event will be a hybrid event: in-person and online. Learn how this year’s event will be different by clicking here.
