This article describes how the benefactors of University of South Florida (USF) Latino Scholarship Program (LSP) support students in more ways than one. LSP, now in its 17th year, was started by the Latin Community Advisory Committee to the USF president to attract Hispanic students to the school. The committee didn't want to just provide financial assistance; it also wanted benefactors to mentor scholarship recipients. The money and mentorship afforded through the LSP program help students fulfill their dreams of pursuing academic careers that they believed were out of reach.
