Miller Lite and the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) Offer $180,000 in College Scholarships

Hispanic college students in the U.S. and Puerto Rico will have the opportunity to apply for the scholarships through July 31

PR Newswire

CHICAGO, July 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Miller Lite and the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities are supporting the next generation of Hispanic leaders by awarding $180,000 in college scholarships and leadership development. In addition to the scholarships, the 40 recipients will get a spot at HACU's ¬°Adelante! Leadership Institute where they will learn how to use their unique voices to become great leaders. Applications must be submitted online through before July 31.

Forty scholarships between $2,500 and $5,000 will be awarded to eligible college students in California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, New York, Texas, Wisconsin and Puerto Rico. Eight scholarships of $5,000 will be awarded in Houston and 12 of $2,500 to other cities in Texas. Scholarships are open to college students who are over 21 years of age, attend a HACU-member institution in a participating market, and are U.S. citizens, permanent residents or DACA recipients.

"As a brand that believes in the power of being your authentic self, we recognize the importance of supporting future leaders with diverse perspectives and backgrounds," said Allison Wallin, Miller Lite Marketing Manager at Molson Coors. "This is why every year Miller Lite works with HACU to provide college scholarships and professional development opportunities to the Hispanic community."

According to the U.S. Department of Education, only 54 percent of Hispanic students finish a bachelor's degree within six years. Financial constraints continue to be one of the primary factors for college students that don't graduate, which is why in the last two decades Molson Coors has donated nearly one million dollars to HACU to help Champion Hispanic Success in Higher Education.

"We are thrilled to continue our longstanding partnership with Miller Lite," said HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores. "Together we have awarded nearly $650,000 in scholarships and we hope to provide Hispanic students with more opportunities for years to come."
