Funding Resources for Hispanic Students

ACO logoAffordable Colleges Online has published an Online Guide for Hispanic students.

In their guide, you can find:

  • scholarships targeted towards Hispanic students
  • budgeting for college
  • information on issues such as being undocumented or being a first-generation college student

The guide was developed in part by Margarita Baressi, a Puerto Rican graduate of Boston University. Baressi attributes her success to the financial aid she received during her college career.
