CHCI, established by a small group of Hispanic Members of Congress in 1978, serves nearly 1,700 young Latinos annually with educational services and leadership development designed to promote college readiness and provide direct access for students to national political leadership. CHCI awards $400,000 every year in college scholarships to Latino students with financial need.
