Scholarship Program

        The Wisconsin Hispanic Scholarship Foundation, Inc. (WHSF) / Mexican Fiesta provides a cultural, educational and literary environment to enhance and open opportunities to improve academic success and quality of life of the Hispanic community while promoting a better understanding of the arts, history, literature, economic development, and perpetuation of Hispanic culture in the metro Milwaukee area, as well as throughout the state and the country. 
 
 WHSF/Mexican Fiesta works hard every year to accomplish our aim by hosting our annual fundraiser event, “Mexican Fiesta”, which has been held for the past 44 years at the Henry. W Maeir Festival Park every fourth weekend in August (24th, 25th & 26th, 2018).

         This year the WHSF/Mexican Fiesta and LULAC Councils of Wisconsin 342 & 343 are working in collaboration to provide scholarships to deserving young Hispanic men and women that aspire a higher education. Thanks to this collaborative effort we have awarded more than $1,300,000. Our goal for this year is to empower a greater number of Hispanic students through our scholarship fund program. We are confident that we will achieve our goal with your support and the support of our partners and community because we all share the same vision, “Education is the key of the future”.
