Puerto Rican Society Scholarships Overview

​The Puerto Rican Society, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation, will award at least five scholarships of one thousand dollars ($1,000) to each student that meets its qualifications. Awarding scholarships is among the organization’s major purposes.

​The scholarships of the Puerto Rican Society are awarded to Hispanic students from the St. Louis region with high credentials and superior academic qualifications that are US citizens and/or legal residents. Those meeting these requirements are encouraged to apply for the scholarships. One scholarship is reserved for a Puerto Rican student. The scholarships are not limited to members of the Puerto Rican Society.

​The scholarships are granted to students that continue their education in a college, university or other institution of higher learning, whether for study at the undergraduate or graduate levels. Every year the Scholarship Application Process will re-open in the month of March.

​The Scholarship Committee of the society is responsible for overseeing the awarding of scholarships. The Scholarship Committee selects a Scholarship Evaluation Council, which will screen and select the Hispanics that will be awarded the scholarships. Members of the Society cannot be members of the Scholarship Evaluation Council. The Scholarship Evaluation Council will re-convene in the month of June.
