We began our scholarship year with a workshop for graduating students to help them apply to our scholarship on line. The following topics were covered:

           How to apply for the Drew Silvern scholarship on the internet.

           Tips for creating and managing applications.

           Important dates to remember.

           Information on accessing grants from other universities.

           Perfecting application essays.



Our annual fund raising fiesta took place in late May. Friends met to reunite and applaud this year's recipients, enjoy live music and delicious food.

Returning recipients thanked us for the support they have received and told us about some of their goals and university experiences.



Shortly after the fiesta we had a reception for the recipients and their families.

Conversations were animated, and a good time was had by all.
