Find out why Latinos and African Americans should never step foot in a College…

without applying for these scholarships first…. 


Because the chances of them finishing what they started are lower than ever. People of color are having to put their collegiate dreams on hold because of the lack of funding.  

Now thanks to our good friend Jaime "El Maestro" Emeric we have 35 resources you can apply to and get the funding you need for college.


Even if you do not have a college-aged child at home, please share this with someone who does, and to anyone and everyone that comes to mind. Though there are a number of companies and organizations that have donated money for scholarships to African Americans and Latino Students, a great deal of the money is being returned because of a lack of interest or awareness. No one is going to knock on our doors and ask if we can use a scholarship. Take the initiative to get your children involved. Money shouldn't be returned to donating companies because we fail to apply for it. Please pass this information on to family members, nieces, nephews, friends with children etc. We must get the word out that money is available. If you are a college student or getting ready to become one, you probably already know how useful additional money can be.
