LAACU SCHOLARSHIP FUND

The LAACU scholarship fund makes it possible for more of today's young minds and future leaders to receive one of the world's best undergraduate educations available. Over the next five years, we are committed to raising $150,000 - just $30,000 per year - to be eligible for the Columbia College Scholars Match. We hope we can count on you to help us reach this important goal.

To make your gift using Columbia's safe and convenient giving site, please follow the steps listed on this page.

  • Identify Latino alumni leaders to serve as mentors to foster the professional development of students;
  • Assist Columbia in the recruitment, promotion and retention of Latino faculty administration and students;
  • Promote Latino alumni service to Columbia University and local communities;
  • Assist Columbia in the academic and personal development of Latino students;
  • Participate in the formulation of Columbia policies as related to the Latino community;
