Yes

A brief description of the institution’s formal designation:

The University of Houston has been designated an Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Postsecondary Education. UH is now one of only three Tier One public research universities in the nation with this designation and the only such institution in Texas.

A university is designated as an HSI if its enrollment of full-time undergraduates is at least 25-percent Hispanic. The designation means UH may compete for grants that support or expand educational opportunities of Hispanic students.
