The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) was organized in 1976 by five Hispanic Congressmen Herman Badillo (NY), Baltasar Corrada (PR), E. "Kika" de la Garza (TX), Henry B. Gonzalez (TX), and Edward Roybal (CA), to monitor legislative and other government activity that affects Hispanics. The founders' goal was to work in conjunction with other groups, both inside and outside Congress, to strengthen the Federal commitment to Hispanic citizens and heighten the Hispanic community's awareness of the operation and function of the American political system.


The Hispanic College Fund is the product of a dedicated group of Hispanic businessmen and women who were inspired to respond to the alarming growth in the number of talented Hispanic students who could not afford a college education. This call to action was precipitated by a compelling letter to the editor published in November 1990, in Hispanic Business magazine in which a student described his disillusionment in seeking financial aid from chief executive officers profiled in the magazine. Several concerned Hispanic CEOs who read the same letter responded by offering to help support the creation of the Hispanic College Fund.

The Hispanic College Fund’s mission is to educate and develop the next generation of Hispanic professionals. Our scholarship programs focus on developing Latino youth who are pursuing undergraduate degrees in business, science, engineering, technology and math.
