The Hispanic Scholarship Consortium collaboratively leverages resources to provide scholarships to Central Texas Hispanic students and offers a network of support that mentors and empowers scholars to graduate from college as workforce ready leaders engaged in our community.
Working in collaboration with Consortium Members, the Hispanic Scholarship Consortium (HSC) continues to serve the Central Texas community with a unique combination of leadership, scholarship and mentorship over the last ten years.
After HSC's first year, it quickly became evident that in order to be truly impactful, HSC would need to offer more than simply a check. To truly empower Hispanics to graduate from college, scholarships are renewal able up to four years to provide continued support. Additionally, HSC began offering workshops and training to fully engage and support its scholars to degree attainment. Those two components are now integral facets of the HSC Scholars Program.
Over time, HSC continues to evolve and grow to best meet the needs of the students served. Case management services have expanded to include mentoring, guidance, regular communication, a true cohort experience and leadership training on par with professional services offered in the private sector. In 2014, HSC launched Latino Leaders with Austin ISD to serve a larger community to equip & empower a generation of Hispanic students for college and career success.
