In today's environment, post-secondary education is one of the critical keys to advancement and success. The increase in the Hispanic/Latino labor force has clearly become a clear call for the need of a highly educated work force affecting the revenue streams throughout the country.
The Hispanic Women's Corporation (HWC) has made a clear difference in the academic and professional lives of our students. The HWC Scholarship Program provides not only tuition support, but advice, encouragement, peer contact with the colleges, role models, an alumni base and success stories to motivate students. Monetary awards are based on grade point average, need, interest, volunteerism and dedication from the applicants for undergraduate and graduate degrees as indicated on our application. Awards have ranged from $1000 to $20,000 annually. HWC awards over 50 scholarships annually and students are presented at the annual HWC Scholarship Benefit Luncheon. HWC will plan to showcase the scholars chosen every year and to follow them through their chosen academic programs.
Many thanks to our sponsors for their positive impact and assistance throughout the years.
