Raised by families who value the importance of continuing school, Hispanic students, the newest kids on the higher education block, are having a profound influence on the college admission process. From the Mexican border to Minnesota, from California to the Carolinas, most are first-generation college students who are feeling the absence of family members who already mastered the stressful process of entering college. Thousands are forced to navigate the system alone, where of course the cost of college is a chief concern.

 

BeingGirl has put together a tiny Hispanic scholarship sampling. If you are interested in entering one of the STEM fieldsscience, technology, engineering, and mathematicsopportunities for financial help abound. According to a 2005 study, 22.7% of Hispanic students entering college that year were interested in the STEM fields compared with 18% of white students.

 

Never before have there been as many diverse groups dedicated to insuring that anyone who wants to, can have the opportunity to continue her education through Hispanic scholarship. Consequently, never before has there has been a better time to be a successful, well-educated person. Good luck!
