Hispanic professional society & diversity job fairs at NSHP.org

More than 50 million people in the United States identify as Hispanic, making the growing Latino population by far the largest minority group in the country. Though there are continued cultural, economic, and societal barriers to educational success, students of Hispanic descent have recently made significant gains.

Graduation rates among Latino students jumped 10 percentage points between 2006 and 2010, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, and the number of Latinos enrolled in postsecondary education has grown from 2.9 percent in 1972 to 16.5 percent in 2011, based on Pew Research Center analysis.

One of the biggest hurdles for Hispanics who have their sights set on attending college is the hefty price tag of education. Thankfully, there are many organizations and programs geared specifically toward the Hispanic population that are helping offset the high cost of postsecondary education through scholarships.
