The Fresno Hispanic Scholarship Fund is accepting applications through Sept. 30 for the 2008-2009 academic year.
The fund was formed in 1988 to provide financial support to Hispanic students entering higher education institutions, said Ofelia Gamez, director of the College Assistance Migrant Program at California State University, Fresno and the fund president this year.
The organization has provided nearly $1 million in scholarships. The fundâ€™s board of directors is composed of community leaders in various fields and professions.
