In 2005, The Walt Disney Company commissioned a TRPI study titled College Scholarships for Latino Students: Are Opportunities Being Missed?, which found that online scholarship information was plentiful but often outdated, not actively disseminated, and in English only.

In November 2006, with funding from The Sallie Mae Fund, The Walt Disney Company, and Southern California Edison, TRPI was able to develop an inaugural scholarship directory that listed all regional organizations that awarded grants and scholarships targeting eligible California Latino students.  At the same time, AT&T funded the creation of the original online directory, which builds on the printed directory and findings of the original TRPI study and provides the most updated information possible.
