Directory of National Fellowships, Internships and Scholarships for Latino Youth.
Congressional Hispanic Caucus Inst., Washington, DC.
This directory aims to make Latino youth aware of various fellowships, internships, and scholarships available to finance their higher education. The three sections are each arranged alphabetically by organization name. Each entry contains a brief description and contact information, including Web site address. Approximately 50 fellowships are described. Most aid minority students pursuing professional careers; a few are targeted specifically to Latino students or to particular Hispanic ethnic groups. The 27 internship programs provide undergraduate or graduate students with summer or year-round work experience in professional careers, government, or advocacy organizations. Some internships are unpaid; others offer a stipend or college credit. The 37 scholarships range from $250 to $10,000. Almost all are targeted specifically to Hispanic students. Some have residency requirements or are intended for students attending particular institutions. An appendix lists additional resources on student financial aid. (SV)
