There are many grants that are available to the minority community. Hispanics being one such community there are many grants that are there for them too. But the problem is that these minorities are not at all aware of these grants that are specially designed for them.
About the beginning of his term President Barack Obama stated that US would be a country that would have the highest percentage of people with post-secondary school degree. According to the recent study by American Enterprise Institute, claims that Obama’s goal would never be reached due to the lagging number of Hispanics with college degrees.
The study found out that only a minimal number of 51% of Hispanics enrolled themselves into college in 1999, 2000, and 2001 in order to attend their degree course. The AEI also gathered the information that there are specific reasons as to why this is the case with the minority ethnic group of the country.
Regardless of fact that Hispanics have lower college enrolling rates and graduation rates, it is important that Hispanics understand that there are barriers that exists within their system and these barriers are the ones that are placing them at an unfair position. Thus they are always at a disadvantageous situation.
Thus Hispanic students should avail themselves of all the information that they can lay their hands on about college like the admission process and the financial aids available out there that could be gathered from the website or from elsewhere. This makes them completely aware of the position that they are in and they know better what to do or how to go about it.
A very recent study shows that the future economic success in the state of Florida depends upon the increasing Hispanic post-secondary graduates. As the Hispanic population in the state is exploding it would be very soon that the labor population of the state would be of Hispanic origin.
According to the policy report there is a continuous information education that is being made available to the Hispanics so that they are aware of the needs that are to be done in order to get into and finish college.
