Since 2001, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) has published six editions of the National Directory of Scholarships, Internships, and Fellowships for Latino Students. This was the only publication in the United States that provided a comprehensive list of scholarships, internships, and fellowships targeting Latino youth. With the continuing partnership with State FarmTM, who began sponsoring the Directory's publication in 2008, CHCI replaced the printed directory with the launch of CHCI NextOpp in 2014 -- a powerful, easy-to-use online database for students, parents, counselors, and education providers. This new online tool allows users to search for opportunities based on their unique profile, location, and interests. The site also provides helpful reading materials to further educate users about the college-going process.

For nearly four decades, CHCI has educated, empowered, and connected effective and committed Latino leaders by promoting education attainment and college access, providing unmatched career development experience, and offering award-winning leadership programs that connect program participants to the most powerful network of U.S. leaders. In a nation where one in three children are Latino and more than 90 percent of Hispanic children are native born, CHCI’s mission is more critical than ever before in our nation’s history. CHCI’s effort to develop Latino leaders directly impacts the future workforce and our nation’s ability to meet the workforce challenges of the 21st century.

We hope that you will take advantage of our online tool for success and also reach out to CHCI as you progress in your higher education attainment goals and your professional career. Please consider our leadership programs and find out more at
