HITEC Foundation Scholarships for Hispanic/Latinx Students Accepting Applications

By Uloop Staff on February 21, 2022

The HITEC Foundation Scholarship Program, an annual initiative to enable the next generation of Hispanic/Latinx technology talent through financial assistance to attend college, is currently open and accepting applications for the 2022-23 academic year, according to a recent press release.

Through the program, HITEC Foundation will award $5,000 scholarships to students pursuing a degree in technology at an accredited, non-profit college/university or vocational/technical school in the United States. HITEC Scholars also gain access to internship and mentorship opportunities provided by the Foundation.

In 2021, the Foundation distributed $170,000 in scholarships to 34 students, including Isabel Gallegos.

“Being selected as a HITEC Scholar is an immense honor,” said Gallegos, a computer science major at Stanford University. “This award is meaningful in so many ways – not only does it provide me with significant financial support, allowing me to focus on my academics and research, but the recognition as a HITEC Scholar provides me the confidence and assurance to continue to pursue important challenges in science, engineering, and technology that will change our society in significant and meaningful ways.”

This competitive program is open to graduating high school seniors or current undergraduate/graduate students of Hispanic/Latinx heritage who are majoring in Technology or a related discipline with a minimum 3.0 GPA. Applicants must also be U.S. citizens, permanent legal residents or eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status.

The deadline to apply for the 2022-23 academic year is March 7, 2022. For more information and to begin the application process, visit https://hitecglobal.org/mpage/HITECFoundationSchoO.

The HITEC Foundation Scholarship Program is administered by International Scholarship and Tuition Services Inc., an independent company that specializes in managing sponsored educational assistance programs.
