National Hispanic Recognition Award Recipients

LT students excelled in College Board assessments and schoolwork to earn these awards, which colleges use to identify academically competitive underrepresented students.


LT students have earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs. These
National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them meaningfully connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous and/or Rural/Small Town
Recognition through College Board’s Student Search Service. 

Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town.

Eligible students will be invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and will be awarded at the
beginning of the next school year. Students will receive their awards in time to include them on their college and scholarship applications.
