Request a Grant Writer

Awards of $1,000 to USA and Territories Hispanic high school seniors to honor outstanding academic achievements and community involvement. Awards may be used for college expenses or to fund a community service project. Awards are intended to recognize excellence in multiple categories such as business and finance, education, engineering, entrepreneurship, healthcare and science, media and entertainment, social justice, and technology.

Gold, Silver, and Bronze recipients are selected in each category and receive a one-time grant to fund their college education or to fund a community service effort that tackles a social issue.

Once selected, recipients will be celebrated in 10 virtual ceremonies and will become part of the broader HHF network of 200,000 professionals and fulfill the unique cycle of leadership where we meet America's priorities in the classroom and workforce.

The Youth Awards program is the main pipeline to Hispanic Heritage Foundation's (HHF) system of talent that prepares and positions Latino youth through the award-winning Latinos On Fast Track (LOFT) program as they transition from high school, to college, to graduate school, and into their careers.
