The Scholarship was established by Buckeye CableSystem and Telemundo, one of the Spanish-language networks carried on Buckeye. Scholarship applicants are required to have a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA and submit an essay addressing the theme “I’m Proud to be a Hispanic-American in Ohio.”
Applications for the Buckeye CableSystem/Telemundo Scholarship of the Toledo Community Foundation are available through the Guidance Departments of high schools in the Buckeye CableSystem Toledo service area, generally after the first of the year. Scholarship awards are announced in April.
