café bustelo scholarship

My baby sister (she’s 17!) will be off to college soon. It’s so crazy! She just started looking at different schools and is actually looking at a bunch in California! Seeing her go through this process reminds me of how exciting it was for me at her age. I was the first in my immediate family to go to college which was so important. My years at NYU were some of the most exciting and fulfilling in my life. I feel so fortunate to have been able to attend. I’m still so thankful to my family for sending me.

With that, I know a college education can be crazy expensive, which is why I’m so excited to partner with Café Bustelo and their “El Café del Futuro” scholarship. It’s an essay contest for students of Latino descent living in the U.S. in partnership with HACU (Hispanic Association of Colleges & Universities).A little extra cash for school is always a good thing! All the info you need to apply is below. This year’s essay topic should describe how your Hispanic/Latino heritage, family, and the community in which you grew up has inspired your desire and motivation to obtain a college degree and how you plan to give back to their community. The deadline to enter is May 26th, 2017.

Thank you to Café Bustelo for partnering on this post.
