“This scholarship helped me pay for school and books that year, but it was so much more to me than just financial aid. With this scholarship, I felt empowered as a Hispanic woman. I am now one of only a small handful of bilingual counselors in the region making a difference in mental health for our community.” – Analisa Chavez Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Counseling May 2019
