LULAC Scholarship | LULAC National Scholarship Fund 2022/2023
The LULAC National Scholarship Fund (LNSF) was established in 1975 by LNESC and LULAC to assist youngsters from undeserved communities in realizing their aspiration of attending college. LNSF is a one-of-a-kind collaboration of grassroots activists and businesses that funds educational opportunities for deserving youngsters across the United States. LNESC matches every dollar donated by local LULAC Councils with corporate partners, doubling the amount provided in both the council and company names. This concept produces a true grassroots/corporate collaboration for Latino community empowerment. Former LNSF scholarship recipients have gone on to become leaders in business, science, government, and education. The assumption that future awardees will display the same degree of brilliance is ensured by a rigorous selection procedure.
