Scholarships & Awards
In New York State, public fellowship aid is scarce and we must actively encourage under-represented minorities to attain an excellent Stony Brook education. The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Center (LACS) has already founded two such fellowship programs. The Partnership Fund for Latino Scholarship, has been helping deserving students for more than a decade and the A. Sánchez Construction Corporation Scholarship, since 2003, shows how Long Island businesses have assisted students with their generous contributions.
LACS welcomes contributions and new scholarships honoring prominent Hispanics/Latinos, as well as larger developmental opportunities in endowed chairs and research, and outreach programs around such topics as Latino migration on Long Island and the challenges for cultural awareness, public services, and human rights. If you wish to make a donation, please go to link and enter "HISPANIC & LATINO SCHOLARSHIP" http://alumniandfriends.stonybrook.edu/page.aspx?pid=358
Each Fall Semester The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Center and The Hispanic Heritage Month Committee offer university-wide scholarships for eligible students. Below are links to scholarships that are offered and celebrated in conjunction with Stony Brook University's Hispanic Heritage Month (October) http://www.stonybrook.edu/hhm
Winners are announced at the annual Hispanic Heritage Month Awards Banquet.
