Latinas First Scholarship Application

Thank you for applying to the Latinas First Foundation scholarship. Our scholarship is intended for Latinas who live in Colorado though they may attend a college outside our state. To best prepare for this application, please review the five essay questions below and plan for your responses to be between 300 and 500 words for each question. You will need a copy of the first page of your Student Aid Report from either your FAFSA or CAFSA indicating your Expected Family Contribution. In addition to writing essays, you will be asked to tell us about your extracurricular activities and work experience, including dates of participation and honors or special recognition received. We are interested in finding Latina leaders who have made an impact in their communities and will be strong representatives of our organization.

Applicants do not need to be at the top of their class but should tell us in their narratives why that may be the case. Students should have a minimum 2.0 grade point average, can be a high school senior or college student to apply, and should be a resident of Colorado. We encourage all Latinas from Colorado to apply including those who qualify for ASSET.

Eligibility Requirements:

Enrolled as a High School Senior, College Student
GPA: 2.0 and above
Latina Resident of Colorado
