On May 23 2017, the Latino Scholarship Fund held its annual banquet at The Log Cabin in Holyoke, MA.
That time is here again. You are invited to join us in saying, “SI SE PUEDE!”
“…It basically started at my kitchen table in 1989… At that time, back in the late 80s, I felt that there was a very unfair distribution of funds for minority students and that didn’t sit well with me…”
-Gloria Caballer-Arce, Ph.D

At the Latino Scholarship Fund (LSF) banquet on May 23, 2017, we are awarding twelve scholarships to Latino college-bound, low income, high school seniors in Western Massachusetts. At the annual awards dinner, in addition to honoring these students, we also publicly recognize outstanding Latino leaders and allies in a range of fields as role models to our youth.
