Testimonials

“Thank you so much for choosing me to receive your scholarship. It makes me feel so amazing to have been granted the support I need to follow my passion for business at UT. I am very grateful for this incredible award.”

– Colin W., University of Texas at Austin

“The Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce scholarship became a turning point in my journey to afford college. A few weeks before high school ended my parents and I were still very worried about how to pay for college as we believe that we have gotten to the point where I have received all the aid was going to get for that upcoming school year. However, our luck changed one afternoon in May when I received an email from the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce notifying me that I have earned a scholarship from them. That news was a true blessing as it was exactly the help I needed to cut the tuition for my first school year in college by half. The Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce scholarship helped me stop worrying about how to pay for college and actually enjoy the transition from high school to college.”

– Daniela S., University of North Texas

” I am currently a Freshman at the University of Texas at Dallas.  I am a Neuroscience Major with the hopes of pursuing a career in the medical field.  I am ever so grateful to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for providing me with an academic scholarship.  This scholarship has had so many positive impacts on me.  The financial benefits are enormous.  I am allowed more time to study while not worrying about finances as college life is a pricey one.  It also has provided me with confidence.  Knowing that my years of hard work during my high school were rewarded has provided more fuel to my fire while pursuing a difficult academic major.  I hope to pay it forward one day and support the Chamber once given the opportunity.  Thank you for empowering me and good luck to all the recipients of this year’s scholars.”

– Sommer S., University of Texas at Dallas
