Delta Air Lines gives USD150,000 for Latino higher education

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) said its partner Delta Air Lines is contributing USD150,000 towards scholarships for the organization.

The contribution will be used to provide financial assistance to Hispanic students enrolled in accredited not-for-profit colleges, or universities, during the 2016-2017 academic year, with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) majors. The scholarships will help students cover costs, such as tuition, books, supplies, and other essentials for the academic year.

This donation continues a partnership between Delta Air Lines and helps HSF ensure that exceptional Latino students across the country receive the support needed to complete a higher education and become leaders in their professions and communities.

Founded in 1975, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund empowers Latino families with the knowledge and resources to successfully complete a higher education, while providing scholarships and support services to as many exceptional Hispanic American students as possible.

Delta Air Lines provides service to 32 countries and 57 destinations in the region, offering over 1,800 weekly flights between the US and Latin America/the Caribbean.
