Inspired by Café Bustelo founder Gregorio Bustelo's passion for reinvesting in the Latino community, this scholarship has already granted $180,000 to Hispanic students. The application only requires an essay (800 words or less) describing how your heritage, family, and community have impacted your desire to obtain a college degree and what you intend to accomplish with the degree. Ten scholarships worth $5,000 are awarded each year.
G2 Crowd just announced a $60,000 college scholarship for students who exemplify an entrepreneurial spirit and mindset. The campaign will offer twelve $5,000 awards. Because the program is so new, there are few applicants. Requirements include having a 2.5 GPA, attending an accredited higher education school in the United States, and a 500-word essay. The deadline for the first scholarship window closes on October 19.
