Although this is a good place to find some specific scholarships, we encourage you to visit other sites that are made specifically for scholarships such as:

LNESC Scholarships

Macy's Emergency Fund


The Macy's Emergency Scholarship Fund is a joint partnership between LNESC & Macy’s to provide financial resources to deserving students facing economic hardship and immediate monetary need that, if not met, could result in an inability to complete classes or a degree program.

NBC Universal / LNESC


The NBCUniversal/LNESC Scholarship Program is intended to assist and encourage outstanding undergraduate Latino students attending a U.S. post-secondary institution with an interest in the media and entertainment industry. The Program awards ten (10) $5,000 national scholarships to qualified rising sophomores and juniors and is sponsored by NBCUniversal and administered by the LULAC National Educational Service Centers (LNESC).

Ford Driving Dreams


The Ford Driving Dreams Scholarship Program awards $2,000 scholarships to qualified high school seniors. Applicants must plan to enroll full-time in an accredited college or university.

Exxon Mobil / LNESC


The ExxonMobil Engineering Scholarship Program recognizes outstanding Hispanic high school seniors who plan to pursue a degree in engineering at U.S. post-secondary institutions. Sponsored by the Exxon Mobil Corporation, LNESC awards one (1) national scholarship of $20,000, paid over four years, and twelve (12) $2,000 local scholarships to qualified high school seniors.

LULAC National Scholarship Fund


LNESC and LULAC established the LULAC National Scholarship Fund (LNSF) to help youth in underserved communities make the dream of college enrollment a reality. LNSF is a unique partnership between grassroots advocates and corporations that fund educational opportunities for deserving youth across the U.S. Every dollar raised by local LULAC Councils is matched by corporate partners secured by LNESC, increasing the amount given in both the council and corporate names. This model results in a true grassroots/corporate partnership for the empowerment of the Latino community. Former recipients of LNSF scholarships are now leaders in fields of business, science, government, and education. A rigorous selection process assures the expectation that future recipients will demonstrate the same level of excellence.
