During this event, students represented their countries and were entered in to win one of three scholarships. The pictures above are of our winners and other pictures from this fabulous event!
The Latin American Educational Foundation works to advance the educational, leadership, and economic status of all Hispanics to improve the greater community.
Twice a year, two winners receive $5,000 scholarships to apply towards their education. In addition to this cash award, each winner will also receive two Education.com Lifetime Memberships (one for the winner and one to share with an existing or aspiring K-12 teacher of the winner’s choice).
There are three different scholarships listed below that may fit your needs.
Two scholarships will be given away to help pay for housing, books or tuition for the upcoming spring 2019 semester. Submit a 500-600 word essay answering the question, "What makes a home a home?"
U.S. Bank Student Union Scholarship gives you a chance to win up to $20,000.
This scholarship will open for the 2019-2020 aid year on November 1, 2018. These funds will go towards a college education for a DACA or TPS student who came to the U.S. before reaching their 16th birthday and is a high school or community college graduate.
“CCD’s work-study program provides a funding source for students who need to work part time to support their educational expenses. It is an excellent opportunity to gain relevant work experience in your field of study and you'll have a professional reference available when looking for your next job opportunity.
As a work-study student employee, you are more involved with CCD by learning how the College functions first hand and making deeper connections with both staff and students. Also, research has shown that students who participate in work-study are more likely to graduate and get a job after college, so we would like as many students participating as possible!
