Maná launches scholarship for Latino students




By Roberta Pardo

Recently, the Mexican group Maná announced it was starting The Maná Scholarship Program to benefit Latino students who want to further their education.
Although the application deadline was Oct. 23, because of the success of the program, the application process is expected to come back next year.
In partnership with the Selva Negra and Univision foundations, and administered by Scholarship America, the program assists up to 15 students ages 18-35 who identify as Latino and plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
“These scholarships are intended to help applicants who have a demonstrated commitment to positive change in their communities; specifically, those who have chosen to help clean up or otherwise improve the environment around them,” the official press statement said when the scholarship program was first announced.
The scholarship was open to high school seniors or graduates and current college undergraduates. Applicants were required to be U.S. citizens, U.S. legal residents or undocumented residents, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients.
For its initial year, only the first 1,000 applications submitted were considered.
