Bienvenidos Latinx Scholarship
We are excited to announce the Bienvenidos Latinx Scholarship at HCC!
The Bienvenidos Latinx Scholarship provides financial support to Latinx students attending or planning to attend Holyoke Community College. Awards from this scholarship will cover up to $2,500 per student. Student recipients will also be connected to mentoring, workshops, and peer/alumni support to further welcome them to the HCC community and support their ongoing success.
The Bienvenidos Latinx Scholarship will be awarded to 20 eligible students for the inaugural 2021-2022 academic year.
The Bienvenidos Latinx Scholarship was established by the HCC Foundation earlier this year when the Foundation's Board of Directors voted to allocate $75,000 to support Latinx students and take HCC from a Hispanic Serving Institution to a Hispanic thriving institution. The Bienvenidos Latinx
Scholarship is endowed through the Foundation and contributions may be made at any time by clicking here.
To receive the award, eligible students must be enrolled or intend to enroll in at least six credits at Holyoke Community College for the fall 2021 semester, and must identify themselves as a Hispanic, Latina/o, or Latinx student. The Bienvenidos Scholarship is open (but not limited) to DACA, undocumented, and international students. Preference will be given to students residing in Holyoke, Springfield, or Chicopee.
The deadline to apply to the scholarship is Friday, August 6.
