2024 Casa Hispana Scholarship Program

The scholarship application period closed on March 1, 2024.


At Casa Hispana, we believe that investing in our youth is investing in our future. As a community, it is important that we support and encourage the education of our Hispanic/Latinx students, who often face unique challenges in pursuing post-secondary education. We are proud to offer this scholarship opportunity as a means of supporting and empowering our Hispanic/Latinx students on their educational journey.


We are awarding scholarships of $500 and $1000 to Calumet, Outagamie, and Winnebago County Hispanic/Latinx residents pursuing post-secondary education. Casa Hispana considers several criteria in the scholarship selection process: grades/academic achievement, financial need, leadership/volunteerism/extra-curricular activities, and letters of recommendations.


If you have problems or any questions filling out the application form, please contact us at casahispanascholarship@gmail.com.
