Latinas Unidas Scholarship
Latinas Unidas directly sponsors the Latina Scholarship Fund.
The Latina Scholarship Fund is a donor advised fund created from the partnership of the Latinas Unidas Network of Rochester and the Women’s Foundation of Genesee Valley.
From time to time, local organizations, companies or individuals come forward with scholarship donations for specific programs and ask Latinas Unidas to facilitate the awarding process. Among others was the Latinas Unidas Youth Leadership Scholarship, created especially for ¡Soy Unica! ¡Soy Latina! Rally attendees and sponsored by a local Latina-own business for several years.
We will post here any additional information related to these scholarships as they are founded.
If you or your organization are interested on sponsoring a special scholarships or make a donation for the Latina Scholarship Fund, please contact us at scholarship@LatinasUnidas.org.
