Education is an important achievement among Latino families so Coca-Cola and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund are teaming up to help make a difference this summer. As families plan for the next step in their teen’s education process it’s time to think about not only potential schools to attend but also financial aid, scholarships and getting students and their families prepared for the many changes that lie ahead for both.
My inspiration to go to College was not only myself, but also my mother and siblings. It was important to me for my brother and sister to see the commitment it takes to be a scholar, and I've continued to strive for that mission in hopes of one day completing a PHD.
Coca-Cola is a beloved brand among Latinos - shares its appreciation of Latino culture and its strong connection to educational goals by supporting the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. The #ForTheDream Hispanic Education Program aims to inspire consumers to engage and participate in the #ForTheDream movement and #ForTheDreamSweeps sweepstakes. Visit http://coke.com/forthedream and enter the sweepstakes which run through August 31st.
This summer Coca-Cola is donating $100,000 to the Hispanic Scholarship Fund and to help raise additional money toward the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, Coca-Cola is donating $1 for every social media post with the hashtag #ForTheDream, up to $10,000. So get to sharing!
