WHAT WE DO

The Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston (IHCH) is a non-profit organization founded in 1965 by a group of professionals living in Houston that joined together to preserve and disseminate the richness of Hispanic culture, values, and civic interests with the community of Houston, TX. IHCH serves the Hispanic community, providing different educational and networking activities in collaboration with local universities, the Texas Commission of the Arts, Houston Arts Alliance, the Miller Outdoor Theater, and other private organizations and sponsors. The main priorities of IHCH are education and preserving Hispanic culture and values. As such, the Institute’s committees organize activities and events to raise funds for our scholarship program. We are proud to award merit-based scholarships to Hispanic high school and college students from Houston during our annual Gala, Noche de las Americas, hosted every October.

WHO WE ARE

The IHC mission is to disseminate and preserve the rich Hispanic culture, and to highlight the historical, linguistic, scientific, and artistic achievements of Hispanics or Latin-Americans, particularly Hispanics and Latin-Americans residing in Houston, Texas.
