The purpose of the PUENTE Scholarship Fund is to provide financial aid to persons of Hispanic origin so that they may continue their education after graduating from high school. A Hispanic student is any person who has at least one parent of full Hispanic origin. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of specific criteria including, the quality of one’s personal written statement, interview, financial need, grade point average, school/community involvement, and the strength of course load.

 An interview with the Puente Scholarship Selection Committee may be required.  The recipient(s) will be announced at Awards Day at the La Feria High School.
