Scholarships

The Barrientos Scholarship Foundation (BSF) was established in 2005 to assist young Latinos in pursuit of higher education. With the cost of college education increasing every year, it becomes essential that financial aid is made available to assist our youth in meeting their educational needs.

The Barrientos Scholarship is available to students with Latino heritage who are attending colleges or universities in the State of Nebraska.
