Description:
The Education Fund partnered with PepsiCo to offer all students of Latino descent who are beginning or continuing their studies at higher educational institutions in Arizona and California, to apply for the PepsiCo Cesar Chavez Latino Scholarship Fund. The Fund will provide $300,000 in scholarship awards to qualified Latino students in Arizona and California regardless of national origin or immigration status in an effort to promote their academic success. The Fund supports 10 scholarships at $5,000 per student annually and will continue to do so until 2021. Scholarships are granted solely based on academic excellence, leadership in extra-curricular activities, commitment to volunteer service in the community and financial need. They are designed to supplement the students' financial resources from family, government, and other sources. The intent is to fill the gaps our students encounter in financing a college education. We hope that these scholarships will result in better educational and, ultimately, economic opportunities for Latinos in America.
