“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”
- John Dewey

With costs of higher education rising more than 538% since 1985, it’s no secret that attending college costs more now than ever before. But without education, we stand to lose more than ever – and we feel that’s simply too high a price to pay.

Some of you may already know that a few years back Maria Luisa established a scholarship fund, fulfilling a longtime dream. The program is designed to recognize Rockland County high school female seniors who have demonstrated a desire to learn, community involvement and also have interest in supporting Fair Trade and Eco-friendly principles.

For the current academic year – and 2018 award consideration – we are also proud to announce that we are expanding our program to include those who identify as female, as well.

As a result of your generous contributions, we are now able to offer a SECOND SCHOLARSHIP, this additional award to be presented to a Nyack high school female senior.

Since its inception, The Rockland Community Foundation, a charitable organization committed to building a better Rockland, has helped us facilitate the program. But we continue to rely on your ongoing support to ensure the program not only continuing but also growing. We feel it's already a success – last year we raised an amazing $3,500 – but we know we can do more.

Thank you for joining us in this most important effort that encourages - and supports - the next generation of female leaders.
