LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

From Texas Tech University:

Texas Tech University's Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) chapter was recently selected as the first HSF Scholar Chapter of the Year.

"The Hispanic Scholarship Fund is an important mechanism to assist high-achieving students attend institutions of higher education," said Juan Muñoz, vice president for institutional diversity, equity and community engagement.

The Texas Tech chapter was chosen for its continued outreach initiatives undertaken throughout the year, including college and career fairs, parent workshop presentations, student panel discussions and recruitment trips. Texas Tech was chosen out of 37 other HSF chapters throughout the nation to receive the recognition.

"Having a nationally recognized HSF chapter on our campus will serve as an incentive for high-achieving Hispanic students across the country to attend Texas Tech," Muñoz said. "As the fastest growing demographic, helping to educate this population has profound consequences for the sustained prosperity of the state and the nation."

The HSF is supported and funded by Texas Tech's Cross-Cultural Academic Advancement Center. 

In 2008, the Texas Tech HSF chapter was implemented to help the increasing Latino student population on campus, many of whom are first-generation college students, succeed and earn a college degree.
