As a parent, you are always planning for your child’s future. I know from experience not only how expensive colleges are but how confusing some college applications can be. With 69% of Hispanic graduates going directly to college after graduating high school, there is a greater need for more information about college and financial support.
You will play a critical role in helping your children navigate the college application process and access the resources and support needed to excel in college and beyond.
The new public service advertising (PSA) campaign by the Ad Council and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund gives Hispanic parents access to the resources they need to help their children prepare, plan, and pay for college.
The PSA encourages parents to visit HSF.net to find information they need to guide their children through the application and enrollment process—and also to ensure that they have the financial resources needed to graduate.
The site is not only easy to read and understand, they also break things down for you into different categories.
- Getting Ready For College- This section breaks down the steps you need to take to make sure your child is ready for college.
- Financial Aid – Even if your child receives a scholarship, they may still be eligible for financial aid.
- Scholarships – Explore all the different scholarships they have to offer.
- DACA Students (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)
- Programs/Outreach – These are events and workshops that could benefit your child.
Whether you have a child just getting ready for college or one looking for college financial aid, visit HSF.net and make the process easier.
But don’t just take my word for it, here are some Celebrity videos talking about the Hispanic Scholarship Fund.
