Comité Noviembre Scholarship Awards Program

Comité Noviembre’s scholarship campaign was launched to identify more opportunities for the community to sponsor scholarships in an individual’s name, family’s name, or in memory or honor of a loved one.  Comité Noviembre requests a commitment of $1,000 per year for five years, allowing Comité Noviembre to sponsor additional scholars for five years. This commitment allows the donor to choose the parameters for the scholarship they sponsor. 

Since its inception, Comité Noviembre has developed programs focused on providing educational opportunities and leadership development for Puerto Rican and Hispanic youth. These programs are firmly rooted in the belief that to succeed in life, one must pursue a higher education, give back to one's community through volunteer efforts, and know one's cultural roots.  


Our scholars continue to honor this tradition of giving back to their community and making a clear impact and difference through their volunteer efforts. Comité Noviembre is extremely excited about the future of our community and our young people. The caliber of students who have applied for and received the scholarship, have demonstrated a desire to pursue their chosen fields and have given back to the community in various ways that directly affect change. Many have shown a vision and maturity beyond their years, and others have already faced and have overcome many challenges.


A Scholarship Campaign form is attached for your review and consideration.

Please complete and return it by Friday, May 31, 2024, so that it can be included in the Comité Noviembre description of the scholarship. Information on the Comité Noviembre scholarship program, descriptions of other scholarships, criteria, and guidelines have also been included.
