Resources for Latin@ Students

According to data from the Iowa Department of Education, Iowa’s school-age population has become more diverse over the past decade and projections indicate that trend will continue. Within the next ten years, high school graduating classes in Iowa’s public schools will be even more diverse with the most significant increases expected from the Hispanic student population.  Hispanic students are projected to more than double over that same time period, accounting for nearly one in ten Iowa graduates by 2019-2020*.

To help Latin@ students in Iowa overcome barriers to postsecondary education, Iowa College Aid has compiled the following resources to assist Latin@ families as they plan, prepare and pay for college.

De acuerdo a la información del Departamento de Educación del estado de Iowa, la población en edad escolar de Iowa se ha diversificado en la última década y las proyecciones indican que la tendencia continuará. Dentro de los próximos diez años,  los estudiantes quienes se gradúen de las preparatorias públicas en el estado de Iowa serán aún más diversos;  los aumentos más significativos se esperan de la población estudiantil hispana.
