Though attaining a higher education may seem unachievable for students, the Esperanza Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars is dedicated to providing some financial relief to students facing financial burdens that also demonstrate academic and extracurricular excellence. Esperanza's purpose as an organization is to provide these students with scholarships to ease their need, because Esperanza believes that all students should be given the opportunity to achieve their academic goals, regardless of personal or financial hardships. 

In the past twelve years Esperanza Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars sponsors have helped many students by helping them be one step closer to their dreams. Not only are many students offered a one time scholarhip award, but they are also being exposed to other opportunites. For example, Esperanza hosts annual Mayor's Gala, 4th of July Parade, Tardeada, and Toyota Leadership Dinner for scholars and alumni. During these events, Esperanza is able to build an environment for scholars and alumni to network and build leadership skills within the Inland Empire Community. Free music entertainment and dinner meals are offer. Our scholars and alumni are given opportunities to share their personal hardship testimonies as college students through video recording and public speaking. Many of Esperanza's scholars and alumni are able to receive additional scholarship, job, and internship opportunities through Esperanza's events, such as Maria Ramos (2011 ESF Scholar) and Natasha Tadin (2012 Esperanza Scholar).

 Esperanza Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars is also currently seeking to build a Scholarship Ambassador Program that will offer free leadership workshops to Esperanza scholars and alumni. Some of the workshops will provide Esperanza scholars and alumni assistance with writing scholarship essays, developing networking skills, and polishing job resumes.  

Without your assistance as a sponsor, Esperanza will not be able to continue to install hope into students to see their dreams of obtaining higher education one step closer into becoming a reality. Esperanza's annual scholarship awards and events are successful due to the commitments and contributions given by sponsors. Esperanza would like to give a special thanks to the generosity of our donors and sponsors. Thank you for choosing to invest in our younger generation and in our community. Students achievement in pursuing their college degree is also an entire community achievement.
