Darden Foundation Grants $150,000 For Low-Income College Students

A study conducted by The National Center for Education Statistics finds that even after work, parent contributions, and financial aid, low-income students are left with an average gap of $2,200 of unmet financial need. The Darden Foundation scholarship is structured to respond to this need in a direct way, making a crucial difference for low-income students.

About the Hispanic Scholarship FundFounded in 1975, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) believes that the country prospers when all Americans have access to the opportunities a college education can afford. As the nation's leading Hispanic higher education fund, HSF works to address the barriers that keep many Latinos from earning a college degree. To date, HSF has awarded over $360 million in scholarships and has supported a broad range of outreach and education programs to help students and their families navigate collegiate life, from gaining admission and securing financial aid to finding employment after graduation. HSF has created Generation 1 st Degree , a program that envisions a future where every Latino household will have at least one college graduate, creating an enduring impact on the college outlook of Latino families nationwide, and strengthening the American economy for generations to come.
