The Latinas Unidas Scholarship Fund is a donor-advised created from the partnership of the Latinas Unidas Network of Rochester and the Women’s Foundation of Genesee Valley. We seek to advance the lives of Latinas in our community and create an environment in which they have the tools to overcome social and economic barriers while realizing their full potential.
Latinas Unidas has been awarding these scholarships since 2002. The recipients are adult Latinas, 25 years and older, who desire to pursue educational initiatives that do not receive funding from traditional sources. We support women seeking additional training to develop skills required for job advancement and financial independence.
Eligibility for the scholarships are as follows:
- A resident of the seven-county area of Genesee Valley: Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Yates, Orleans, and Wayne,
- A Latina, 25 years or older,
- Be accepted and enrolled in a training or formal educational program that leads to job and financial advancement,
- Be a high school graduate or have obtained a G.E.D.
