Scholarship opportunity from National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators

The National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators will award the John S. Martinez  Leadership Scholarship  to Latino public high school students who reside in the district of a Hispanic State Legislator.

The scholarship has been specifically designed to help Hispanic high school students achieve educational success. This program has been implemented within the thirty eight (38) states and territories that have Latino state legislators. The award will be provided to a total of 11 Hispanic public high school students and no more than two recipients will be selected per state.

Each recipient will be awarded a one-time $3,000 grant towards their higher education in recognition of outstanding academic achievements and leadership. Additionally, recipients will have the chance to meet with their local Latino legislator. This scholarship is in honor of the late John S. Martinez, a Hispanic leader who served as a member of the Connecticut House of Representatives and a former president of National Hispanic Caucus.

The deadline to submit an applications is March 15, 201. Find the application here.
