LULAC National Scholarship Fund (LNSF)
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.
The mission of the LULAC National Educational Service Centers is to provide educational and leadership opportunities to create lifelong learners and leaders within the Hispanic community. We seek to develop America’s future workforce by effectively preparing young people for the jobs of the new economy.
The LULAC National Scholarship Fund (LNSF) is currently open. Applications must be submitted directly to a local participating LULAC Council by April 30, 2020
