The PepsiCo Cesar Chavez Latino Scholarship Fund is awarded to both incoming and current undergraduate students (regardless of immigration status) attending school in Arizona or California. The fund – which provides $5,000 a year for 10 recipients – is open to students with GPAs of 3.0 or above. It also takes leadership and extracurricular activities into consideration.

 “They are designed to supplement the students’ financial resources from family, government, and other sources,” Chavez’s site states. “The intent is to fill the gaps our students encounter in financing a college education. We hope that these scholarships will result in better educational and, ultimately, economic opportunities for Latinos in America.”

The recipients will be honored at the annual Si Se Puede Gala, and will need to complete 30 hours of community service in the 12 months after receiving the award. The application requires a two letters of recommendations and an essay.
