Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF)
Do you know someone pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree? Would a scholarship and support services that include career and mentorship be of help? If you know a friend, family member or mentee who plans to continue their education and hasn’t already applied for a scholarship with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF), I enthusiastically invite you to reach out to them to encourage them to apply for the 2016-17 academic year.
In the last scholarship cycle, HSF awarded more than 4,400 scholarships funded by 100 different companies and organizations. The HSF application allows students to apply for multiple scholarships with one application! Students have the potential to receive $500-$5,000 for the institution and major of their choice.

Spirituality and religion play an important role in many of our students' lives and in the lives of the host community members. As you prepare for your study abroad experience, consider how your religion or spiritual beliefs may influence your experiences abroad. You will likely have encounters that challenge your notions of spirituality. You can alleviate potential misunderstandings by learning as much as possible about the culture where you you'll be living. Your experience abroad can be an incredible opportunity to learn about world religions and to understand social and historical views of religious acceptance and tolerance in your host country. Take the time to learn how people in your host culture worship and engage in different religious practices by exploring the links below:
