The Hispanic Youth Institute (HYI) is a three-day, two-night college empowerment program hosted on college campuses throughout the country. The HYI emphasizes college, career, and community. With hands-on sessions and workshops, the high school students who attend become committed to graduating from high school, achieving a four-year college education, pursuing a professional career in business or STEM, and giving back to their communities.

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund is the nation’s largest not-for-profit organization supporting Hispanic higher education.
Founded in 1975, HSF provides American families with the financial and educational resources they need to achieve a college education and help America be more competitive.
To date, HSF has awarded over $360 million in scholarships and has supported a broad range of outreach and education programs to help students and their families navigate collegiate life, from gaining admission and securing financial aid, to finding employment after graduation.
