One or more scholarships will be awarded annually to a resident of Berks County who will be pursuing post-secondary, undergraduate education at an accredited institution and whose ethnic background originates from Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Central America or South America.

Scholarship applicants shall exhibit a commitment to past academic achievement. The recipients will be involved in school activities or community activities or family obligations or job responsibilities. The intent is to acknowledge and encourage those individuals who have demonstrated a level of personal responsibility necessary to attend and succeed in a continuing education institution, and who have a financial need.

Past recipients may reapply each year and will be reconsidered along with all other applicants. This is not a requirement, however, applicants are encouraged to file the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FASFA) form by March 1. For assistance in completing this application or the FASFA form, contact Centra Hispano Daniel Torres at 610-685-1807.

To be considered for this scholarship, apply between January 1st and March 15th. All applicants will be notified in May.
