The Hispanic Forum of Mesquite, Inc. offers yearly scholarships to Hispanic students that attend the five Mesquite ISD High Schools and the Mesquite Academy, with each institution receiving one scholarship. Funds raised for the scholarships come directly from donations and our yearly fundraisers. The main fundraiser for this organization is the HFM Gala which was first celebrated in November, 2008; plans are to make this a yearly event. Funds are also raised from our partnership with the Real.Texas.Festival and the City of Mesquite.
In 2009 HFM presented its first-ever scholarships to six students graduating from Mesquite ISD. Each student received a $500 scholarship for a total of $3000 in scholarship funds. Our goal is to continue to grow that amount, offering students more scholarship funds for their education, in the future. Applications are made available at each of the high school’s counseling office and/or by clicking on the button below.
