The Becas Program At Centro Hispano of Dane County, we believe that the time to invest in our Latino youth is NOW.
The Becas (Scholarships) Program offers scholarships to students who have participated in Centro's programs. Scholarships are used to help cover the cost of higher education. The program has been organically in existence for more than 20 years but became a formalized program in 2016. In 2017, a Scholarship Committee was established to help grow and sustain the program.
Centro annually awards an average of two to four $2,500 scholarships to high school seniors, and two $5,000 scholarships to students already enrolled in college to help them complete their studies. A minimum of two scholarships are awarded in each category per year.
