I’m trying to decide which scholarships I should encourage my son to pursue this fall as a senior. He’s a good student but not great. He isn’t the most motivated student but is going to be taking a heavy load this fall that includes 5 AP classes, so I know there’s going to be a lot of arm twisting to get him to do these scholarship applications as well as his college applications.
I’m curious if he even has a chance at getting any money from The Hispanic Scholarship Fund. He has approx a W3.80 GPA, 1200 SAT, no Varsity sports—just JV, no leadership activities—just participation, and some community service. We don’t qualify for financial aid.
Anyone have a child with similar stats get the scholarship or know of someone who did? Any amount. The only student I know who got it is my nephew and he was a great student and wound up at a top 20 university, so I’m not too optimistic.
I’d appreciated any feedback at all. Thanks!
