The following organizations are collaborating with HSF to help fulfill our mission.
Established in 1972, ALPFA is the oldest national Latino professional association dedicated to enhancing opportunities for CPAs, accountants, and other finance-industry professionals and students. ALPFA serves the community through student chapters’ professional development programs, by awarding scholarships, and by providing access to HSF’s industry network of professional members, sponsors, and students, as well as additional resources.
Hispanic Scholarship Fund and Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) have formed a strategic alliance to ensure Hispanic youth are on track to secure a college education. This innovative alliance offers college scholarship opportunities for Club members participating in the BGCA Latino Outreach Initiative. Working with both parents and young people, our alliance with BGCA reinforces the message that a college education is critical to a successful future and that this is an achievable goal for every child in this country.
Excelencia in Education was founded in 2004 to accelerate Latino students’ success in higher education by strategically applying research and knowledge to public policy and institutional practice. HSF joined with Excelencia and a coalition of 65 partners in the nationwide initiative Ensuring America's Future by Increasing Latino College Completion. The purpose of the initiative is to inform, engage, and sustain efforts to promote the role of Latinos in making the U.S. the world leader in college degree completion. The effort places particular emphasis on what leaders can do in Federal, state, and local government – as well as philanthropy, higher education and business – to achieve this goal.
Great Minds in STEM (GMiS) is a gateway for Hispanic students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). It also engages families, educators, and employers to assist students to successfully pursue careers in those fields. GMiS offers K-12 educational programs that promote college readiness, awareness, and access to STEM education. At the college level, GMiS offers scholarships for Latino STEM majors and holds the Hispanic Engineer National Achievement Awards Conference (HENAAC) where students can network with STEM professionals and build their skills through workshops and seminars.
The National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) is dedicated to building and advancing Hispanic leadership through graduate management education and professional development for careers in business. NSHMBA offers scholarships to assist qualified Hispanics to pursue MBAs, organizes career fairs, and offers programs to prepare undergraduates for their first professional jobs/internships in business and for pursuing an MBA.
