Kia recently announced 16 award recipients for the Kia and Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) scholarship. Encouraging more Hispanic students to go to school in the US, the award covered up to $4,000.
From Cornell to Texas A&M, student award recipients from around the country were grateful for the support. According to Kia, there are over 400 national HACU member institutions that were eligible. All students needed to have were an acceptance letter from one of these schools and a 3.0 GPA.
“Kia believes in contributing to a better future for all through education, and through our partnership with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, we are proud to provide these scholarships to Hispanic college-aged students who are some of the best and brightest minds in higher education,” said Rhonda Bolton, head of corporate Diversity initiatives for KMA.
The Kia Hispanic College Scholarship is dedicated to diversifying classrooms in America. With a growing number of Hispanic populations in the US, Kia is striving to ensure that colleges are maintaining a range of qualified students and providing opportunities where there were none before.
