College & University Scholarship Program:
Since 1932 LULAC Councils have been selling tacos, tamales, having dances, etc., to raise monies for scholarships that are given to Hispanic students meeting certain guidelines. Several years ago the LULAC National Educational Service Centers (LNESC), began the LULAC National Scholarship Fund. LNESC raises monies through donations from national corporations, while the LULAC local councils continue raising their monies the old fashion way. At a certain time of the year LNESC sends out matching funds information to all councils who in turn following the guidelines set by the LNSF program, submit their monies for matching purposes. Thereby, a council who would otherwise give a $400 scholarship, may now be able to give an $800 scholarship.
LULAC offers a variety of scholarships for high school seniors, undergraduate & graduate college students through our educational arm, the LULAC National Educational Service Centers, Inc. (LNESC).
LULAC National Scholarship Fund
A scholarship program cosponsored by some over 100 LULAC Councils who raise scholarship funds at the grass roots level which are matched nationally by sponsoring corporations. The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), has considered education its number one priority since it was established in 1929. As part of LULAC’s education efforts, the LULAC National Scholarship Fund (LNSF) was established in 1975 to provide scholarships to Hispanic students attending colleges and universities. Under the LNSF program, local LULAC Councils, in partnership with local and national businesses, award scholarships to students in their communities. LNSF is administered by the LULAC National Educational Service Centers, Inc., a non-profit educational organization established by LULAC to provide educational programs for Hispanics and other youth.

The Washington Youth Leadership Seminar, Washington, D.C.
The seminar offers a truly unique opportunity for students to voice their opinions directly to national leaders and policymakers. It challenges participating youth to focus on their own leadership development and encourages participants to apply these lessons back in their home communities. Participants are recommended by LULAC Councils to serve as representatives of their home states.
Once in Washington D.C., students work with LNESC staff and LULAC leaders from across the country to develop a platform of initiatives which are of particular interest to Hispanic youth. After meeting with key policymakers in the field and discussing with think tank representatives, participants collaborate on a position piece regarding that year's theme.
