New Scholarship Aims to Assist Hispanic Students

Clip | 3m 11s

College can be hard to pay for, especially for students who are undocumented or have undocumented parents, as many federal grants are unavailable to them. In an effort to ease the cost burden, the General Consul of Mexico in Austin is offering a new scholarship program, in partnership with Foundation Communities. The MexAustin Scholarship will award roughly 140 Hispanic students $1,000.
