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

It’s no secret that attending college costs more now than ever – costs of higher education have risen more than 500% since 1985.

But without that advanced education, we – and society as a whole – stand to lose in numerous ways. We do not accept that scenario, so we now renew our commitment to helping combat the situation.

Some of you may already know that a few years ago, Maria Luisa Whittingham fulfilled a longtime dream by establishing a scholarship fund.

The ML by Maria Luisa Scholarship program was 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.

In recognition of the spirit of the award, the criteria for consideration was also expanded since its launch some five years ago to now also welcome submissions from those who identify as female, as well.

The generous support of the Maria Luisa “family” – our customers and friends – has also allowed us to expand the program, as we now offer a second scholarship. One remains awarded to a Rockland County senior, while a second is designed specifically to recognize a senior from Nyack High School. The additional award is a nod to the way the Nyack community itself has embraced Maria Luisa and her business, supporting it for more than 30 years.

Since the ML by Maria Luisa Scholarship’s 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 our scholarship program not only continues for many years to come - but also continues to grow.

We want to take this moment to sincerely thank you for joining us in this most important effort that encourages - and supports - the next generation of female leaders.
