Hispanic Women’s Network Announces Latinas In Progress Scholarship Recipients

The Hispanic Women’s Network of Texas (HWNT) Fort Worth chapter recently announced its 2020 Latinas in Progress (LIP) scholarship recipients. Annually, students who successfully complete the LIP program are awarded scholarships from charitable members, donors and universities.

LIP collaborates with area universities and colleges to motivate graduating high school Latinas toward achieving their dreams of a college degree. It not only acclimates participants and their parents with the rigors of college but also equips them with vital tools to enrich their personal and professional lives.
