Are you looking to make a difference? The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) is offering an exciting opportunity for students and parents, but we need your help! We are requesting your support to recruit participants for our virtual HSF College 101, which will be taking place via Zoom, on Saturday, November 6, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time. This is an exciting opportunity that you won’t want to miss!

HSF College 101 is a FREE, bilingual program, designed to help middle and high school students, and their parents, prepare, plan, and pay for college. HSF subject-matter experts will deliver the content and will be joined by admissions representatives from Princeton University, Temple University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

For your convenience, I am including our English flyer, our Spanish flyer, and a marketing guide which contains promotional templates for newsletters, emails, social media posts, and robotexts/robocalls. Feel free to share the link with other colleagues, students, and parents in your network. All are welcome to attend!  We hope that this tool will make it easier to share this opportunity, but do let me know if you would like to schedule a call to discuss further.

Thank you in advance for your prompt reply. Your support will allow us to reach a greater number of families, and for that we are grateful.  We are looking forward to sharing this free resource with your entire community!
