Title:College scholarships for Latino students: Are opportunities being missed?
Organization:Tomas Rivera Policy Institute
Short Description:This study's main research findings suggest that although information-providing organizations offer a variety of financial aid and career information to Latino and other minority students, they do not provide or disseminate their information in a manner that most effectively reaches Latino students and parents.
Annotation:This study's main research findings suggest that although information-providing organizations offer a variety of financial aid and career information to Latino and other minority students, they do not provide or disseminate their information in a manner that most effectively reaches Latino students and parents. TRPI’s findings also demonstrate that wide variations in scholarship information and application requirements pose challenges to parents and students who are trying to navigate the application process. This is troubling in light of previous research findings that illustrate that an overwhelming majority of Latino parents value a college education, yet are unaware of common financial aid resources.
