ANA DIVIS REED
Ana Reed is attending University of Missouri St. Louis as a graduate student of the Master's program in Social Work.
'I realized that in order to continue helping others through my profession here in the U.S, a graduate level education was necessary - so going back to school was a must. I'm grateful to the Hispanic ECS Fund for helping me mitigate the high cost of education; their scholarship will allow me to completely cover the cost of books for my first year of grad school'.
ALEJANDRA DE SANTIAGO
Alejandra De Santiago is a graduate student at University of Missouri majoring in Information Science and Learning Technologies. She plans of becoming an elementary school librarian.
"I am using my scholarship to help pay for my fall semester at MIZZOU, where I am attending school full time. This scholarship means that I am a step closer to my upcoming spring graduation in 2017, which is very exciting! It's so nice to be recognized and supported in my endeavors to become an elementary school librarian, and this scholarship is evidence of that. I am incredibly thankful!"

LETICIA SOFIA GONZALEZ
Leticia Sofia Gonzalez is attending Truman State University and majoring in Biology with a minor in Chemistry.
'The HECSF Scholarship has been significant help in helping me subsidized for the loss of academic scholarship lost due to transferring to Truman State University after my studies in Mexico. It's a part in enabling me to finish my last year at the university and pay tuition to finally graduate with a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry minor'.
Leticia Sofia Gonzalez
Areli Aragon attends Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois, where she is a Pre-Med student majoring in Biology and she intends to become a Pediatrician.
"I am beyond grateful for the STEM Scholarship I was granted. This scholarship means so much to me since it will help me pay my tuition at Dominican University. Most importantly, however, it will allow me to pursue a higher education so I can major in Biology and give back to the community. It has always been my dream to attend an university, and this scholarship has made that dream come true. Thank You."
Joseline Martin is attending Southwest Illinois College and she plans to become an educator and teach English as a Second Language.
"First of all, thank you for giving yet another opportunity to receive a scholarship. As Vince Lombardi said:
'The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.' "
Diana B. Vazquez

Already have I grown in my musicality as well as maturity and I will keep you updated as I run the course of my journey and pursue my dreams. Thank you for everything.
