Funding for the scholarships is generated by local fundraising efforts and with the LULAC National Educational Service Center (LNESC) matching local funding by approx. 60%. LULAC is also working with local colleges similar to last year to continue the reciprocal program. If a recipient attends a local college many are able to provide matching funds.
To date the Davenport Council has awarded over $415,000 to approx. 722 area students. For more information please contact LULAC Scholarship Chairman Matthew Casillas at (563) 381-7807 or visit our website at: www.lulac10.org The Davenport Council is the largest Council in the Midwest.
