Caminos al Futuro scholars will get a chance to examine the political, economic and social transformations impacting Hispanic and Latino communities nationwide by:

  • Conducting research, ­­­­­­content, and media analyses

  • Engaging in collaborative projects

  • Engaging with leaders who help Hispanic and Latino/a communities in the United States
