Hi there! It's great to hear that you're starting to search for scholarships early in your high school journey. There are quite a few scholarships specifically targeted towards female Hispanic students, and I'll list a few of them below:

1. Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF): This is a large and well-known organization that provides scholarships for Hispanic students in various fields of study. The HSF offers different scholarships, each with its own eligibility requirements, so be sure to check their website for details.

2. ¡Adelante! Fund Scholarship: ¡Adelante! offers several scholarships for female Hispanic students, such as the Mujeres de Vision Scholarship, which is specifically targeted to college-bound Hispanic girls with demonstrated leadership potential.

3. The Eva Longoria Foundation: This foundation awards scholarships to female Hispanic students who are pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. They focus mainly on those students who demonstrate a commitment to community service and leadership.

4. Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) Scholarships: These scholarships are awarded to Hispanic students in engineering, math, and science programs, with some awards being specifically designated for female students.

5. Latinas in Tech: If you're interested in technology, this organization offers scholarships to Latina students pursuing careers in the tech industry.

These are just a few examples of the scholarships available to female Hispanic students. When searching for scholarships, don't forget to explore local opportunities as well. Reach out to your school's guidance counselor, who may be able to point you to scholarships offered by community organizations, local businesses, and other groups.

Lastly, be sure to create a profile on scholarship search websites like Fastweb, Scholarships.com, and CollegeVine's Scholarship Search tool to receive personalized scholarship matches based on your criteria. Good luck in your search!
