John S. Martinez Leadership Scholarship: Now Accepting Applications!

Washington, D.C. - The National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators (NHCSL) is now accepting applications for the John S. Martinez Leadership Scholarship!

NHCSL will award scholarships to a total of eleven (11) Hispanic public high school students that reside in the district of a Hispanic State Legislator. Each student will receive a one-time $3,000.00 grant to use towards their higher education and will be recognized in their community for their excellent academic achievements.

"Education is the key to success and it is the weapon that prepares individuals to reach further heights", expressed NHCSL President, Hon. Eduardo Bhatia (PR). He continued, "The purpose of the JSM Scholarship is to equip our youth with the tools necessary to achieve their academic goals. I cannot think of a better way to start a New Year than with the opportunity to award hardworking students with the recognition they deserve and the support they need to advance their education."

This scholarship is in honor of the late John S. Martinez, a Hispanic leader who served as a member of the Connecticut House of Representatives and a Former President of NHCSL.  Comcast NBCUniversal has made this initiative possible through a generous grant which has allowed NHCSL to continue its efforts in "Closing the Achievement Gap" for Hispanic students.

NHCSL highly encourages qualified students to log on to our website, to submit an application. The deadline for applications is March 15, 2014.
