On Tuesday, HSF will also honor its corporate partner Proctor & Gamble, which has, since 1986, funded more than $4 million in scholarships and college-readiness programs through HSF, along with four other inductees. Since its founding in 1975, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $360 million in scholarships to more than 55,000 deserving Hispanic students. But beyond just helping with a cash influx, the HSF also helps students navigate college life, from the admissions and financial aid process to assistance with job placement after graduation. It also works to address the systemic barriers that keep many Hispanics from earning a college degree. The HLS’s Generation 1st Degree program was founded with the goal that in the future, every Latino household will have at least one college graduate.
