Coca-Cola #ForTheDream Scholarship Program
This is part of a sponsored campaign with DiMe Media and Coca-Cola. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
While I might not be in school anymore, I’m reminded every day of the importance of education and how grateful that I am that my family were able to support me in achieving all of my academic dreams.
While I have partnered together with Coca-Cola in the past, I have to say that I have a special place in my heart for their educational support initiatives. It is obvious that Coca-Cola understands the importance Hispanic families place on education and I was so happy to learn that they are coming together again with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund to help Latino students achieve their higher education sueños!
Can you tell I’m excited in my Vine video?
So, as I mentioned in the video, as part of the Coca-Cola HSF #ForTheDream National Scholarship Program, Coca-Cola announced a $150,000 donation to organization that will be awarded in college scholarships to qualifying students who apply from January 1 to March 30, 2016 at coke.com/ForTheDream. Check out this video that offers a bit more information about this program.
While its encouraging to read about the ongoing increased in college enrollment amongst Hispanics, we can’t ignore that this population still lags behind other groups when it comes degrees earned. That is exactly why this program is so important amongst the Hispanics community, as a way to curb some of the financial pressure that a student might feel before making those important decisions about higher education.
So, even if you might not be a student yourself, this is a call to action to all of us…to make sure this information about gets into the right hands and onto the right Facebook walls!
