Hispanic Advisory Committee Scholarship

For Scotts Bluff County Residents of Hispanic Heritage

Scholarships will be given annually to Scotts Bluff County residents of Hispanic heritage to pursue undergraduate education. Scholarships are available to high school graduates and undergraduate college students. The number and value of scholarships will vary based on annual Hispanic Advisory Committee scholarship resources. Scholarships may be renewable.


To qualify for the Hispanic Advisory Committee Scholarship, students must:

  • Be a United States citizen
  • Have at least one parent of Hispanic descent.
  • Be a Scotts Bluff County resident or a graduate of an accredited Scotts Bluff County high school.
  • Be a graduating high school senior or college undergraduate who has not completed a Bachelor’s degree.
  • High school applicants must enroll full-time for their first semester of college.
  • College applicants must currently be enrolled in twelve (12) semester hours or eighteen (18) quarter hours at an accredited college or university.
  • GED applicants must have completed nine (9) semester hours of college-level work and have verification of the GED certificate.

Deadline for application and supporting documents is February 15th. 


Applicant must:

  • Legibly complete and sign the application
  • Attach two (2) letters of recommendation
  • Attach a personal essay written and signed by the student
  • Attach a copy of their official ACT/SAT and high school or current college transcript (final grades for high school senior year are not required)

​​Recipients are responsible for forwarding college transcripts to OTCF within three (3) weeks of the end of each grading period and must notify OTCF of any address changes. Failure to send transcripts jeopardizes scholarship renewal. Scholarships are paid directly to the school.

If scholarship recipients or their parent(s) move to new address, notification [including new address(es) and phone number(s)] must be given to the Oregon Trail Community Foundation.
