DAVENPORT- Each year the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to qualified students in an effort to help them achieve their career and college goals. Since its establishment in 1929, LULAC has considered education its number one priority.
“Education is key to future success, and we at LULAC10 are excited to help students achieve that success,” said Lupe Hernandez, LULAC scholarship committee chair and student success advisor at ICAN. “For many students the cost of college is a barrier. We are committed to helping eliminate that barrier and help students reach their full potential.”
LULAC Council 10 will award scholarships to qualified students within 50 miles of the Quad Cities who are enrolled or are planning to enroll in accredited colleges or universities in the United States. 2020 LNSF Student Application and LULAC 2020 Guidelines are available here. Applications must be postmarked by March 31, 2020. Awards range from $250 – $2,000.
Last year LULAC Iowa Councils across the state awarded approx. $60,000 to about 70 students statewide. Six Councils participated in the LULAC National Scholarship Fund (LNSF) program last year.
The Mission of the League of United Latin American Citizens is to advance the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, health, and civil rights of the Hispanic population of the United States.
