2020 H.O.T.T. Scholarship Application Instructions

The “H.O.T.T.” is an organization of people working together to help the Emporia Community.  The organization was established in 1998.

As a result of fundraising activities and donations from community businesses, a scholarship fund has been established by the Emporia Hispanics of Today and Tomorrow.  College scholarships are awarded to deserving Hispanics students who exemplify involvement in school, church, and community.

Students will be paid in a form of one check made payable to the school on August 1st.  Awards may be used to pay for tuition, required fees, books, and other related educational expenses.  Scholarships will be awarded for Fall semester only.


The Scholarship committee will review all applications and recommend recipients to the board for approval by April.  Recipients will be notified of their selection following approval.


It will be MANDATORY that recipients attend the annual scholarship recognition.  Students not attending will forfeit scholarship funds awarded to that individual.  Scholarships awarded on July 11th at Cinco de Mayo 1:00 pm.  Dress up for group picture!
