USF Latino Scholarship Program

The Latino Scholarship Program (LSP) was founded in 1992 by generous members of the Latino community to create pathways to higher education for students in the Tampa Bay area. It focuses on Spanish-speaking students to provide them with resources to attain a higher education degree and succeed beyond graduation. The scholarship program offers first generation in college Latino students who often face unique cultural and financial challenges, the support they need to succeed. Scholarship support provides access to education and helps alleviate the financial burden on a student. In addition, the support that students receive from their community instills a greater sense of belonging and motivation to focus on their studies and build relationships on campus that will last a lifetime.
