Cumbre Humboldt is planning to open up another round of scholarship applications on Feb. 15. These scholarships will award five different students $500 for this coming Fall.
Founder and president of Cumbre Humboldt, Lucy Salazar, encourages Latinx students of all ages to apply.
“Any Latinx person who lives in Humboldt County or is attending or planning to attend a college, vocational or technical school in Humboldt County can apply,” wrote Salazar in an email to El Leñador. “They must also demonstrate financial need. There is no upper age or grade limit.”
Cumbre is a non-profit organization in Humboldt County that aims to support the local Latinx community. They offer enriching opportunities such as scholarships, tutoring, cultural dances, access to technological devices, advocating for accessibility and field trips.
Most importantly, Cumbre Humboldt instills confidence in Latinx students of all ages as they enter the academic realm.
The deadline for this scholarship is still to be determined, however it will be posted on their website as soon as the scholarship officially opens. You can find the Google Form application on their website at www.cumbrehumboldt.org.
