Mexican Rock Band Maná Creates $250,000 Scholarship Program for Latino Students

The veteran Mexican pop-rock band announced the launching of the Maná Scholarship Program to help Latino students between the ages of 18 to 35 achieve their dream of higher education.

On Tuesday (May 12), in anticipation of a U.S. tour that starts June 10 in San Diego, the band members presented a $250,000 check to the Hispanic Scholarship Fund on behalf of tour sponsor Montejo beer.

“We’ve always been an active band, be it for the sake of the environment or helping Latinos in the United States,” González said, referring to Maná’s support of Greenpeace and other organizations. “We are honored and excited…about this opportunity to give Latino kids an education.

The scholarship is open to high school seniors or graduates and to current college undergraduates who are either U.S. citizens, legal residents of the U.S., or undocumented residents of the U.S., including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.

Only the first 1,000 applications submitted will be considered. The deadline to apply is Oct. 23 at 4 p.m. ET. Visit learnmore.scholarsapply.org/mana/ for more information.
