The Hispanic Scholarship Fund Announces Gift to Support Scholars’ Passion for Entrepreneurship

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) today kicks off its Entrepreneurship Summit that invites a select group of scholars to a four-day, experiential learning conference introducing attendees to ways of applying an entrepreneurial mindset in any career they choose to pursue.

The 2019 and 2020 Summits are supported by the Charles Koch Foundation and Koch Industries.

“The HSF Entrepreneurship Summit is an essential programmatic component of the work we do with our Scholars, and we are excited to be able to bring it to life in partnership with Koch Industries and the Charles Koch Foundation,” said Fidel A. Vargas, President & CEO, Hispanic Scholarship Fund. “By introducing Scholars to the importance of developing an entrepreneurial mindset, we intend to instill a set of key principles that will inspire them to pursue and accomplish their grandest goals; to achieve personal and professional success; to gain financial freedom; and to give back and do good.”

“We believe that everyone can become a lifelong learner and succeed,” said Brennan Brown, director of education partnerships for the Charles Koch Foundation. “By supporting the Hispanic Scholarship Fund and these exceptional, entrepreneurial-minded students, we hope each discovers their own aptitudes and creatively applies what they’ve learned to help others reach their full potential, developing a sense of fulfillment along the way.”
