September 15 will mark the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month. It’s an important observance for the U.S., which has the second-highest Hispanic population in the world (Mexico is number one). In fact, it is projected that the U.S. will have nearly 129 million Hispanic residents by 2060. This means that more Hispanic students will be attending college to pursue their undergraduate and graduate degrees. Many providers are taking note and stepping up to help these students fund their educations. Whether students identify as Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban or another Spanish-speaking culture, there are many scholarships now available to help them reach their educational goals. Here are just a few of the programs currently open to Hispanic students.
