Information on scholarships and qualifications are divided between Graduating High School Seniors, Undergraduates, Graduate students, and Community College Transfers. Info and applications are also available for The Gates Millennium Scholarship. For more info go to https://hsf.net/en/scholarships/programs/ HSF’s Getting Ready For College page has tons of infor- mation to help walk students and parents through the path to suc- cess. The Financial Aid section is a good resource as well. Students who receive an HSF scholarship may also be eligible for additional funds in the form of other scholarships or other types of financial aid. There is also an area with the latest information for undocu- mented students "Dreamers" and DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) Students. Students who have obtained DACA status are currently eligible and can apply for HSF’s General Scholarship during this scholarship term. The College Life Series provides great tips all year long to help students transitioning to college. College students sometimes have feelings of isolation on campus. More specifically, Latino stu- dents are usually faced with being a minority with regards to the stu- dent population on campus. Each campus has student organizations to help mitigate these circumstances. And HSF has established student clubs at 36 campuses across the country. The role of the HSF Scholar Chapter Network is to pro- mote academic success and student engagement among Latino col- lege students by encouraging them to serve as role models and lead- ers in their communities. Each chapter has a student coordinator trained by HSF who receives guidance on curriculum and program- ming to assist Latino students on their campus succeed. In addition, HSF offers outreach events – such as work- shops, special events, and college retention programs – both in home cities, and on or near campuses. These outreach events are a great way for Scholars, their families, and prospective applicants to benefit from a multi-faceted support system, which includes guid- ance, networking opportunities, ways to get involved in HSF pro- grams, and how HSF can serve as a reference.
