A Class to Remember: 2020 HDF Scholars

We are proud to announce the 2020 HDF Scholar Class - 325 students attending 73 different universities and colleges from all over the country. As a response to the COIVD-19 Pandemic, The Greater Kansas City Hispanic Development Fund Scholarship Program is investing a record $689,000 to support the dreams of pursing a college education for 325 students from both sides of the state line. In the span of over three decades, more than 4,500 Hispanic students from the metro have received college scholarships from HDF totaling over $7 million.

"The HDF scholarship means pursuing higher goals with no limits, one in which many students like myself are becoming first-generation college students and making their immigrant parents proud." says Grace Knight Garcia, a graduating senior from Lincoln Prep Academy (KCPS) who will be attending Williams College in the Fall. "Having this support allows me to focus on my academics, and is the difference between stressing over a math or science class instead of stressing over how to pay for my tuition."
