La Unidad Latina Foundation is a community of socially conscious college-graduates dedicated to the advancement of the Latino community nationwide. We achieve this by propelling students dedicated to advancing the Latino community from High School to College Graduation and beyond. We believe ensuring their future success in High School, College, and in their Careers, will ensure the success of all of the United States of America.
Y Tu También, a La Unidad Latina Foundation program, increases access to higher education for Latinos, 1st generation students, minorities, and any student in need. We provide help with all college applications and help students find the school that is the right match for their interests while encouraging them to strive for the best this country offers in higher education. It is key to our mission that all our programs must always be offered at no cost to students and schools so that there is never a barrier between students and higher education.
Nearly three quarters (74%) of all Latino students who cut their college education short do so due to the financial pressures of supporting their families. We want to make sure all students who start college, finish college by providing scholarships directly to the students when they need it most.
Our scholarship programs are:
- National Scholarship open to all US residents - Fall 2019
- MPower Scholarship supporting DREAMers and Latin American students - Spring 2019
The Carmen Rosa Career Readiness Fund prepares Rising Seniors for the critical fall recruiting season by providing financial assistance for professional attire, providing resume building and interview preparation workshops. We also create industry specific networking opportunities for our students to connect with potential mentors.
