(above image via: here.)

A Hispanic-serving instiution (called an HSI) is a college or university in the US that attempts to assist 1st generation, majority low income Hispanic college students.

An HSI cannot be a for-profit university. An HSI must offer at least two-year academic programs that would lead up to a degree an dbe accredited by a recognized association. Additionally, an HSI must have at least a 25% Hispanic undergrad full-time student enrollment.

There are large grants offered to HSIs through the Department of Education. These grants allow for serving all ethnicities and supplying funds for administration, development, and academic programs, plus facility management, tutoring, and student support and counseling.

Amore.
