Scholarship Fund Wants a College Graduate in Every Hispanic Household

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund is announcing a new effort today to increase college-going and college-completion rates among Hispanic Americans, with the goals of having a college graduate in every Hispanic household by 2025 and increasing the proportion of the U.S. Hispanic population with a college degree from 19 percent now to 60 percent by 2025. The scholarship fund, which is working to build college aspirations among Hispanic families through a public-service advertising campaign, estimates that reaching the 60-percent goal would result in a $13-trillion increase in earning power among the Hispanic population, leading to a $2.2-trillion increase in federal tax revenue.
