North Carolina Hispanic College Fund
Scholarship Sponsored by North Carolina Society of Hispanic Professionals
The NCSHP established this charitable fund at Triangle Community Foundation to benefit Hispanic students in North Carolina. We realize that the high cost of college tuition is often a major factor that students evaluate when considering a college education. The North Carolina Hispanic College Fund (NCHCF) awards annual scholarships worth between $500 and $3,000 to help students who desire to attend college pay for their education. Scholarships recipients are recent graduates of North Carolina high schools who are of Hispanic/Latino background. Recipients of the NC Hispanic College Fund scholarship must enroll in a degree program at a community college or a 2 or 4-year college/university and be committed to public service and community development.
