RHC Scholarship/Grant

Scholarships for Spring 2017 have all been awarded. We will update here when funds are available for Fall 2017.


Hello Students!

We invite you to take advantage of the PALM Emergency Grant and secure additional money to fund your Spring or Fall 2017 semester at UWM.

The Roberto Hernández Center is committed to supporting Hispanic/Latino/a/x student success at UWM. Our experience in serving our students has proven that more often than not, students are also full-time workers, heads of households and parents. In response to the unique needs of our students, the RHC has established the Latino Student Fund, a unique source of emergency funding for currently enrolled Latino students facing unexpected expenses that affect their continued pursuit of an undergraduate degree. The overall goal of the Latino Student Fund is to increase the number of Latinos successfully graduating from the university. The Emergency Fund provides between 8-10 $500 dollar grants each academic year. APPLY NOW!
