The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities is partnering with Café Bustelo® to award twenty-five $5,000 El Café del Futuro Scholarships. Since 2014, $680,000 in scholarship funds have been awarded to more than 100 Hispanic students nationwide through the partnership.
“HACU is proud to be a partner of Café Bustelo® in its 10th year of investing in the higher education success of Hispanic students across the country,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio R.

To enter, students must complete the online application located on the HACU website and write an essay in English or Spanish, in 800 words or less, responding to the following topic:
Describe how your Latino heritage, family and the community in which you grew up have impacted your desire and motivation to obtain a college degree. Additionally, describe what you intend to accomplish with your degree and how you will give back to your community.
