Hispanic Seafair Scholarship Program

Empowering Latinas in Washington State
to become leaders through education and community service

Our 2019 Miss Hispanic Seafair, Yasmin Guzman Villaseñor and Hispanic Seafair Ambassadors

2018-2019 Scholarship Program Overview

The Hispanic Seafair Scholarship Program for Women is designed to give young Latinas the opportunity to celebrate our culture with the goal of enriching their lives through community service, academic mentorship, personal growth, and resources needed for successful leadership. The recipients of the scholarship program are given the titles of Miss Hispanic Seafair and Hispanic Seafair Ambassador. Both women serve as representatives of the Latino community through a year of service.

In 2019, Latino Community Fund will provide scholarships to Miss Hispanic Seafair and Hispanic Seafair Ambassador. In addition, LCF is working to develop programming for Hispanic Seafair participants to receive mentorship, develop and execute community service projects, attend leadership workshops, facilitate community forums, and be part of LCF's youth leadership programming. In 2019, LCF will announce the 2018-2019 scholarship recipients and other awards. Mandatory activities will continue for the newly named Miss Hispanic Seafair and Hispanic Seafair Ambassador. All participants are encouraged to participate in Seafair Leadership Program in Fall 2019 (pending Seafair programming).
