Supporting the Ecuadorian Youth to achieve their higher education goals, and become a successful Professional.

In 2009, JUVE created the Ecuadorian Scholars Fund (ESF) to support more young Ecuadorians and
adults alike achieve their goal of obtaining a college degree, and thus develop as professionals. Our
organization created this Fund in the belief that all people deserve the opportunity to develop their potential,
regardless of their social status. It is our goal to provide the motivating push and support to achieve
their success; and proudly, 2014 is the sixth year providing scholarships.

The “Ecuadorian Scholars Fund,” is without a doubt the most ambitious and important project, not only for
the organization, but also for the Ecuadorian community as a whole. To date, over $25,000 has been contributed
to our community, and we will continue to work hard to provide more scholarship in the upcoming
years thanks to the support from public and private sources as well as members from our community.

The importance of the ESF is due mostly because its success has a long-term and direct impact in the
life of those who will benefit through the scholarship, helping them to obtain a college degree, and thus
develop as professionals and better citizens. 2014 is a special year for Juventud Ecuatoriana as we saw
our very own Executive Director, Edwin Quito obtain his master’s degree from NYU. Edwin is a former ESF
recipient and he represents the mission and vision of our organization and this project.

On behalf of my mother and myself, I want to formally thank you for the Juventud Ecuatoriana Scholarship. Due to my economic situation, you have granted me the opportunity to continue my university studies.   My path towards a brighter future has been initiated all thanks to you.  There are no words to explain my gratitude.

I was so excited to be one of the selected students awarded with the JUVE Becas (2009) and received this economic help for my education. Just a month ago I received my Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice. I felt proud of being not just an Ecuadorian immigrant but also a Hispanic student who even didn’t have the same opportunities as the other students, but still I graduated with high honors “magna cum laude”.

I was extremely honored to be a recipient of the Ecuadorian Scholars Fund Award in 2011. I thank JUVE and all scholarship committee members for their vote of confidence, and support of my education. It is because of organizations like JUVE that I was able to focus on my studies and career goals, and complete my undergraduate degree in May 2012.

My name is Jose Izquierdo and I am one of the proud recipients of the 2011 Ecuadorian Scholars Fund scholarship. This award has helped pave the road for continuing my education in order to graduate as a Civil Engineer by spring 2013. Professionally, it has been added to my resume, which adds diversity and honor to potential employers who have read it. Aside for helping me fund my education, the workshops served as great learning experiences and bonding sessions with fellow compatriots.

I am a proud recipient of the 2011 Ecuadorian Scholars Fund Scholarship. The award was just part of what I gained from being involved in the JUVE community. The seminars were informative and helpful and introduced me to the world of networking. The award assisted me during the second semester of my freshman year in college. It allowed me to move ahead in both my education and professional goals.
