The South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation is a not-for-profit 501©(3) organization founded in December of 1995 for the purpose of promoting and enhancing the quality of education of Hispanic students and to empower and create leaders among our minority youth.

In the past 18 years, the SFLHCC Foundation has positioned itself as a leader among foundations that offer scholarships to financially disadvantaged senior high school students who plan to attend college.

The SFLHCC Foundation offers scholarships annually to graduating sr. high-school seniors, community-college students seeking to transfer to four-year universities, continuing university students seeking to complete their degrees and to students in graduate and professional programs. Students must demonstrate that they come from financially disadvantaged families in order to qualify. In the past 16 years, over $300,000 have been awarded in scholarships.  According to the new US Census, Miami-Dade County is one of the top five counties with most Hispanics in the U.S. Investing in our students today benefits the future of all!!

The SFLHCC Foundation also offers scholarships together in a partnership with Southwest Airlines to those students who have proven to improve the most and demonstrated a commitment to hard work and study.  Students applying for this scholarship that comes in the form of a paid trip to a historical city of the U.S. must demonstrate financial need and have a GPA of 2.8 or above.
