Students will receive a $2,000 participation stipend and attend HACU’s 29th National Capitol Forum on Hispanic Higher Education on April 9-10, 2024, in Washington, D.C.

Undergraduate students in any major interested in public policy and issues related to Hispanic success are highly encouraged to apply. Eligible students must meet the following:

  • Enrolled at a HACU-member institution in Texas or California.
  • Be in good academic standing.
