ABOUT LULSEF AND THIS GRANT

LUL Service & Education Fund exists to advance hermano led efforts in education, career, and leadership development.  We believe that by improving academic outcomes for K-12 students, preparing undergraduate college students for transition into their careers, and providing skills training and leadership development to Hermanos in the workforce, we can increase the percentage of Latinos who graduate from college, diminish the number of Latinos who live below the poverty line, and increase the median income of Latinos in the United States.

WHO CAN APPLY TO RECEIVE THIS GRANT?
