The Hispanic Scholarship Fund: Achieving the Dream


Congratulations to the 2014 Hispanic Scholarship members

For more than three decades, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) has been helping Latino students achieve their dreams of attaining a college education. Honda first partnered with HSF in 2003 to provide scholarships, and in 2010, the partnership was expanded to provide students access to Honda’s summer immersion/internship program. Eligible students must have declared their major in business administration, chemical, electrical, industrial, or mechanical engineering, and they must also maintain at least a 3.0 GPA. Selections are also based on students’ demonstrated knowledge of the auto industry.

2013-2014 Hispanic Scholarship Fund award winners gathered at Honda’s auto manufacturing operation in Marysville, Ohio, for a special presentation. This year’s recipients have an average GPA of 3.72 and hail from all four corners of the United States. Award winners include:

Jason Patrick Alvarez, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (Daytona Beach) – Business Administration

Andres Felipe Borda Cabal, Georgia Institute of Technology – Industrial Engineering/Technology

Camila Camargo, University of Colorado at Boulder – Mechanical Engineering
