5 Scholarships for College Students


Since tuition isn’t going to pay itself, we have compiled a list of 5 scholarships to help college students out!


College tuition has continued to rise across the country. With a 4-year college degree costing on average over $134,000, many parents and students have to look beyond personal savings and financial aid to help cover the costs of a college degree. While far from ideal, more and more students are forced to take out student loans for their college education, with the average under-grad leaving college with $30,000 in loans. The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation is committed to supporting the next generation of business leaders by helping them find the resources needed to pursue higher education.

Since tuition isn’t going to pay itself, we have compiled a list of 5 scholarships to help college students out!
