We're honored to invest in our community by awarding twenty-five $5,000 scholarships to college students at HACU-member institutions to help further their education.

This year, Café Bustelo asked applicants to share how their heritage, family, and community have impacted their desire and motivation to obtain a college degree; how they plan to give back to their community; and what they intend to accomplish with their degree in an essay in English or Spanish (800 words or less).

Since the scholarship began in 2014, $800,000 in college funds have been awarded to 160 Latino students nationwide through the partnership.
