In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Cargill and Rumba Meats, its food brand focused on celebrating family and keeping Latino traditions alive, is partnering with the United States Hispanic Leadership Institute (USHLI) to award 25 scholarships of $1,000 for post-secondary education.

Rumba Meats is also investing in USHLI's Student Leadership Series program, which serves more than 85,000 high school students, in more than 25 states, annually. The Student Leadership Series is designed to connect students with resources, tools and support to achieve higher education.

High school seniors across the U.S. are invited to apply for the Rumba Meats Scholarship between Sept. 15 and Nov. 30. Unique to the Rumba Meats scholarship application is an essay asking students to articulate how their heritage has influenced the direction of their lives, their leadership aspirations and how they plan to serve their communities in the future.

"Rumba Meats, USHLI and Hispanic Heritage Month all share a common priority: to celebrate Latino culture and preserve it for generations to come. That starts by investing in today's youth so that they can become tomorrow's leaders," said Hilary Gerard, Cargill Protein - North America brand manager for Rumba Meats. "We are proud to partner with USHLI to invest in higher education for Latino youth and be a part of their bright future."

Cargill recently joined 81 other companies in signing the We Are All Human Foundation "Hispanic Promise," supporting workplace diversity. The promise is a first-of-its-kind national pledge to hire, promote, retain and celebrate Hispanics in the workplace.
