The USHCC Foundation and Group O has made a $50,000 scholarship commitment to support the endeavors of Hispanic students pursuing a Masters in Business Administration. Each year, the scholarship is offered to students from a different selected university.

"Our philosophy is that everyone wins when people are given an opportunity to show what they can do... The next generation of Hispanic business leaders will need to be prepared to lead and compete on a global level — and we're excited to partner with USHCC Foundation to help make that happen."

Gregg Ontiveros, Group O CEO
