To achieve our mission and address the needs of Latinos communities in Iowa, Latinos Unidos of Iowa raises resources from individuals, leverages them against business, government and non-profit partners in order to invest them in Latinos leaders and organizations via scholarships and small grants.

Join our mailing List to stay informed of scholarship and grant opportunities and other resources and events.  In addition, follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

We are a group of committed volunteers dedicated to promoting culturally centered leadership and highlight the educational programs and social events.  Latinos Unidos of Iowa operates on the premise that in order to raise positive awareness of the Latinos culture and education it must increase investment within the Latinos community and beyond, advocate educational opportunities and highlight the strength that diverse communities bring to our state.

Founded in 1989 Latinos Unidos of Iowa (formally Viva Mexico) is a 501c3 founded to provide college scholarships for Latinos youth in Iowa. Over that last 30 years Latinos Unidos has provided scholarships for hundreds of Iowa college students, served as a link between the Latinos and non-Latinos communities and promoted the wellbeing of all Iowans.
