ORRVILLE, Ohio, USA – Today, iconic espresso-style coffee brand Café Bustelo announced the start of its 2022 Café Bustelo El Café del Futuro Scholarship in partnership with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU). This year, the company will award 25 $5,000 scholarships, for a total of $125,000 to support the education of Latino students.

Since the scholarship began in 2014, $555,000 in college funds have been awarded to 86 Latino students nationwide through the partnership. This year, Café Bustelo wants applicants to share how their heritage, family, and community have impacted their desire and motivation to obtain a college degree; how they plan to give back to their community; and what they intend to accomplish with their degree in an essay in English or Spanish (800 words or less).

Eligible applicants have the opportunity to receive one of 25 $5,000 scholarships. All eligible applications must be received by July 1, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. CT. Scholarship recipients will be announced on or about September 7, 2022.

“At Café Bustelo, we strive to support young Latino students who are not only dedicated to their personal academic success, but are also invested in the development of their local communities,” said Eduardo Merino, Senior Brand Manager at Café Bustelo. “Through the Café Bustelo El Café del Futuro Scholarship program, we celebrate student accomplishments and help them thrive. La educación es un tema muy importante en lo personal y para nuestra marca. Nos da mucha alegría poder ofrecer más becas a más estudiantes año tras año.”

“HACU is proud of the partnership with Café Bustelo that has invested in the higher education success of Hispanic students across the country,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores. “These scholarships emphasize the positive effect our students’ culture has on their desire to achieve a degree and provide much needed financial assistance towards that achievement.”
