The Latino Student Fund (LSF) was founded in 1994 to address disparities in access to education for Hispanic students in Washington, DC, and has since served more than 4,000 youth across its programs.
The mission of the LSF is to provide opportunities for a strong academic foundation for underserved PreK-12th grade students of Hispanic descent and their families to promote higher education and professional leadership. The organization provides year-round, out-of-school-time programs for low-income, at-risk students and their families with the goal of increasing levels of educational attainment in the community.
Meet our Team
The LSF works with several independent and parochial schools in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia to support Latino youth and to encourage multicultural and socioeconomic diversity in PreK-12th grade education. Our efforts are to ensure that Latino youth have access to the best educational opportunities that the Washington, DC Metropolitan area has to offer. LSF Member Schools benefit from the cultural and linguistic support of LSF staff and supporters. In addition, Latino students that attend LSF Member schools are eligible to apply for tuition support through the LSF Scholars Program.

“.I’ve been with the Latino Student Fund for about 12 years, but it’s probably more appropriate to say that the LSF has been with me for that time.”
Alex La Noire, Showcase Speech, 2014
“The Latino Student Fund’s dedication to providing Latino families stronger access to educational opportunities and resources changes lives every day. Thanks to your support, the Latino Student Fund students and I have been able to consistently achieve exceptional grades, high SAT and ACT scores, and college admissions year after year.”
Stefano Escoto, US Naval Academy
“I want all the young scholars to know that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to and that as you overcome the circumstances and persevere, you are not alone. You have your family, your community, and organizations like the LSF cheering you on and helping you every step of the way.”
