Scholarships allow deserving students to attain their educational goals, meet their professional objectives and succeed to their fullest ability. For that reason, Latino de Oro Inc has created its Scholarship Program, designed to support the Latino Community by improving educational opportunities for Latino youths who want to reach their full potential.

The contest awards two students with a cash scholarship of $1,000 each. The scholarship will be presented every year at its Latino de Oro Award Ceremony. The selected recipients must be present to accept the scholarship at the Latino de Oro Awards 2017, which will be held on September 9th, 2017.  The deadline to apply for this year’s scholarship is Friday, August 25th, 2017; the Winner’s list will be available on Latino de Oro website upon selection.
