Guide to Scholarships for New Americans and Minorities

by Maestro on March 4, 2010

in Special Report

I recently came across this brochure from the DFW International Community Alliance titled “Guide to Scholarships for New Americans and Minorities“.

This is a great compilation of scholarships for minorities and I think that it is very important to share that information in this blog because as Hispanics most of us or our children would qualify for many of the scholarships listed here.

The document can be downloaded here: Guide to Scholarships for New Americans and Minorities

Some of the scholarships that can be of interest to the readers of this blog and the visitors of Serenata Mariachi.
