The New York League of Puerto Rican Women, Inc. is a non-partisan, not-for-profit 501(c)6 organization whose mission is the advancement of Puerto Rican and Hispanic women through higher education. The League is one of the few organizations in the nation that assists Puerto Rican women by providing them with the financial support necessary to obtain their college degree. The proceeds of our events go toward the funding of the League’s College Awards Program. The League commenced its mission in December of 2008 and had its first College Awards Gala Dinner Dance in August of 2009. As of August 2017, the League has presented 87 scholarships of $1,000.00 each to undergraduate Puerto Rican / Hispanic women. Visit us on Facebook.com/nylprwinc!
