The Indiana Latino Scholarship Fund (ILSF) was established eight years ago when a group of non-profit organizations collaborated to support Latino students focused on furthering their education. The ILSF has supported hundreds of students by awarding $1.5 million in scholarships. This financial aid has come from corporations, foundations, and individuals like you. Support ILSF

Join author Sonia Nazario in honoring our Indiana Latino Scholars
Sonia Nazario is an award‐winning journalist whose stories have tackled some of this country’s most intractable problems -- hunger, drug addiction, immigration -- and have won some of the most prestigious journalism and book awards.
A fluent Spanish speaker of Jewish ancestry whose personal history includes living in Argentina during the so-called dirty war, Nazario spent 20 years reporting and writing about social issues for U.S. newspapers.
She is best known for "Enrique's Journey," her story of a Honduran boy’s struggle to find his mother in the U.S. Published as a series in the Los Angeles Times, "Enrique's Journey" won the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing in 2003. It was turned into a book by Random House that became a national bestseller and is now required reading at hundreds of high schools and colleges across the country. A Young Adult version of Enrique's Journey was published in 2013 aimed at middle schoolers and reluctant readers in high school.
