Two students receive academic scholarships

OLLU students Naila Ramiro and Kevin Meraz have been selected to receive the Adelante/Ford Motor Company Future Leaders Scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Miller Brewing and the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) established Adelante U.S. Education Leadership Fund, a nonprofit organization focused on breaking the trend of Hispanic non-graduates and furthering their educational future.

This scholarship is for college students of Hispanic descent who have completed at least 30 credit hours of college course work. To qualify, applicants must be majoring in a STEM field (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics).

Both recipients will receive $2000 this academic year.
