    Dear Mayor:
     
    Following a successful 2018 Hispanic Heritage month that included McDonald’s sponsorship of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s Leadership Conference in Washington, DC, I am pleased to announce the expansion of McDonald’s HACER National Scholarship from five to thirty winners. The scholarship application period runs through February 4, 2019.
     
    Established in 1985, the HACER Scholarships provides Hispanic high school seniors the opportunity to directly receive up to $100,000 to help finance their college education, and will be selected based on their academic achievement, community involvement, and financial need. Despite Hispanic college enrollment rates increasing, just 15% of Hispanics between the ages of 25-29 have completed a four-year college degree. For many, the high cost of attending college continues to be the number one obstacle to completing their higher education. McDonald’s is using its scale for good to alleviate this gap by offering programs and tuition assistance, such as the HACER National Scholarship, to help today’s youth achieve their career and education goals.
     
    The expansion of the HACER National Scholarship underscores McDonald’s continued investment in the future of Hispanic youth and in the potential of those that come to work every day at McDonald’s restaurants. Over the past year, McDonald’s Corporation has reinforced this commitment through new initiatives and enhancements to existing programs, including:
     
    ·       Youth Opportunity - a global effort starting in Chicago that aims to reduce barriers to employment for two million young people by 2025 through pre-employment job readiness training, employment opportunities and education programs.
    ·       Archways to Opportunity - a $150 million investment in the Archways to Opportunity Education Program, which provides eligible employees at participating U.S. restaurant an opportunity to earn a high school diploma, receive upfront college tuition assistance, access free education and career advising services and learn English as a second language.  Archways to Opportunity also provides access to the high school completion program and advising services to immediate family members of restaurant employees. Since its launch in 2015, the program has increased education access for over 33,000 people and awarded $42 million in high school and college tuition.
     
    College-bound high school seniors and their parents are encouraged to visit http://mcdonalds.com/HACER for additional college resources in English and Spanish and for details on how to apply to the McDonald’s HACER® National Scholarship.

    SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION GUIDELINES

     

    The American Association of Blacks in Energy is a professional organization of African Americans in the energy industry.  Through its Scholarship Program, AABE seeks to help increase the number of African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans (underrepresented minorities) in energy related fields.  By doing so, we help our nation address a critical need and a challenge to our future economic vitality in the world market.

    • Be a graduating high school senior who has applied to one or more accredited colleges/universities.
    • Plan to major in business, one of the physical sciences, technology, engineering or mathematics fields in preparation for a career in the energy sector.
    • Be a member of one of a class or group of individuals who has been historically underrepresented in the sciences, technology, engineering and math related disciplines.

     

    Selection

    Scholarship recipients - known as AABE Scholars - are determined each spring by the organization’s local chapter scholarship committee for local scholarships and by the National Scholarship Committee for national scholarships.  Recipients receive notification of their selection.

    and awarding amounts. The top candidates from each chapter are sent to compete for a

    $5,000 is given annually for a maximum of four years to the candidate who is judged to

    demonstrate the most outstanding achievement and promise. The New Jersey Chapter of

    AABE will award scholarships in varying amounts. The top winner’s application is

    forwarded to compete for a Northeast Regional Award of $3,000 (The Northeast Region is

    one of six AABE Regions).National Awards are made to the students upon presentation of proof of enrollment at an accredited college or university.  Distribution of local chapter awards are made at the discretion of the local chapter upon proof of enrollment at an accredited college or university.
