RGV Census Ambassador Scholarship Program Encourages Census Participation

The City of Edinburg continues to encourage everyone to participate in the 2020 Census. The Census will provide a snapshot of our nation- who we are, where we live and much more. When you participate, you are helping to make critical decisions. The results will show where communities need new schools, clinics, roads and other services for everyone in our communities.

During this pandemic, now more than ever, we are encouraging everyone to participate in completing their Census, as there is no need to meet anyone or go anywhere, it can be done online or via a phone call with our without assistance. Everyone in our community is doing their part, including students across the Rio Grande Valley.  

This is why a group of local community leaders and businesses have partnered together to establish the RGV Census Ambassador Scholarship Program. This program will provide Rio Grande Valley high school, vocational school, and college students with an opportunity to receive a $1,000 scholarship for their efforts to increase local participation in the 2020 US Census.
