The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF), the largest national Hispanic nonprofit provider of college scholarships to Latinos, recently moved its national headquarters to Los Angeles. The move was facilitated with the support of Toyota USA, one of the organization’s longest term corporate partners.
As the nation’s leading Hispanic higher education fund, HSF works to address the barriers that keep many Latinos from earning a college degree. Since 1975, HSF has awarded over $360 million in scholarships and has supported a broad range of outreach and education programs to help students and their families navigate collegiate life, from gaining admission and securing financial aid to finding employment after graduation.
“HSF considered several important Hispanic cities before deciding to make this strategic move to the nation’s largest Latino market,” said Frank D. Alvarez, President and CEO of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. “In Los Angeles, HSF will have immediate access to a large professional workforce, and media and corporate support, which will greatly benefit our mission to place a college degree in every Latino household across the country.”
The move to Los Angeles ensures that HSF will rank in the top tier of all US nonprofit organizations with 93 percent of its resources going directly to scholarships and programs. For more on the Hispanic Scholarship fund, visit www.HSF.net.
