The Minerva Marrero Hispanic Scholarship Program


About the Scholarship

The 2024 Minerva Marrero Hispanic Scholarship Program is an opportunity for Hispanic High School Seniors embarking on their post-secondary education journey. Recognizing the importance of supporting students as they transition to higher education, this program provides financial assistance to those pursuing studies at trade schools, as well as 2-year or 4-year colleges and universities.

Our approach to selecting scholarship recipients is comprehensive and thoughtful. We assess applications on a variety of criteria, including academic achievement, community service involvement, the quality of supplementary materials submitted, and financial need. This multifaceted evaluation ensures that scholarships are awarded to students who not only excel academically but also demonstrate a strong commitment to their communities and a clear need for financial support.

The scholarship program honors the legacy of Minerva Marrero, whose vision and dedication have profoundly impacted the Hispanic community's access to education. Through this initiative, the Latin American Community Center (LACC) reaffirms its commitment to reducing educational barriers and fostering a brighter future for Hispanic students.
