Each year, the Foundation hosts a scholarship competition. Winners are decided through an essay competition. In April 2020, the Foundation awarded $45,000 to 15 Tulsa County area high school seniors to attend college in the fall.
HAF also awards scholarships to five Tulsa area universities. These schools include the University of Tulsa, University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Oral Roberts University and Tulsa Community College. Each university’s financial aid office chooses the award distribution criteria.
“Earning the HAF scholarship validates all the hard work I invested in high school. As a first-generation college student, my hope is to be a symbol to other kids like me and the larger Hispanic community.”
