Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI)
Awards will be distributed as follows: $5,000 to attend a graduate-level institution; $2,500 to attend a four-year academic institution; and $1,000 to attend a two-year community college or A.A./A.S. degree-granting institution. Total scholarship monies will be equally divided and distributed on a yearly basis as long as recipients maintain good academic standing (i.e. if a student receives the scholarship as an entering freshman, his/her $2,500 award will be distributed in four equal installments of $625 a year). Scholarship awards are designed to cover tuition, room and board, textbooks, and other educational expenses associated with college enrollment.
The number of awards offered varies annually based on fund-raising. Last year, 127 awards were given (15 to community college students, 92 to undergraduate students, and 20 to graduate students).
