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.

Starting college was not easy for me. I had to pay for most of my tuition on my own. The Ecuadorian Scholars Scholarship allowed me to continue my education during my spring semester and also have the opportunity to take summer classes and move forward with my education career. In addition, being involved with the great networking that JUVE offers has opened doors professionally. The members keep in touch about job openings that may be related to your individual professional interest. This is just part of what being involved in an organization that works together and cares about your educational future can offer.
