Local community leader offers student scholarship in honor of his parents.

Mr. Paul Roldan, President of Hispanic Housing Development Corporation has created a student scholarship fund in honor of his parents. The Teresa and Hipolito Roldan Community Development Scholarship Fund is dedicated to providing young Latinos with an opportunity to pursue community development as a career.

Scholarships of $5,000 per year are offered to Latino graduate students in the Urban Planning and Policy graduate program (MUPP) at the University of Illinois at Chicago and at Roosevelt University’s Chicago School of Real Estate. The scholarships support the study of planning, housing, and community development. A combination of classroom work and internships at HHDC or sister agencies provides students with hands-on experience in community development.
