I appreciate being selected as the Ruth Negron Gaines Memorial Scholarship Award winner. I am honored to be part of the NAPRHSW community, and look forward to representing the association on Columbia’s campus. This scholarship will allow me to participate in specialized training workshops focused on meeting the needs of immigrants and refugees. Like Ms. Gaines, I hope to leave a strong legacy to the social work profession.
Thank you National Association of Puerto Rican Hispanic Social Workers! It means a lot to be one of the recipients of this scholarship. This will help me greatly with my student loans and commute to school. I am honored to be receiving this award and be apart of this wonderful community. Thank you again!
Receiving this scholarship is a great honor. It has helped me in many ways during my last year of my graduate program, such as paying for my books. This is a great opportunity that allows me to take a summer class for a trauma certification, which will not only help further my career, but also in achieving my dream of working with children and families a lot sooner. Thank you to the National Association of Puerto Rican and Hispanic Social Workers, you have made a positive impact in my schooling and most importantly in my career.
"Being chosen as a scholarship recipient was a huge honor for me. The scholarship has helped me greatly, where it has given me the opportunity to enhance my education and it has encouraged me to move forward in the social work profession. This opportunity has allowed me to be a part of the National Association of Puerto Rican and Hispanic Social Workers, and it has allowed me to connect with many different people in terms of my clients, colleagues and different groups and communities. Thanks again to the NAPRHSW."

"The NAPRHSW Scholarship was the very first scholarship I had ever applied for and was selected. The scholarship funds helped me tremendously with paying down loan debt for the semester. I was not aware of the association before winning the scholarship and it has been a blessing being apart of a wonderful network for Hispanic Social Workers. Thank you again NAPRHSW."
"I want to thank you again for the scholarship. I utilize this money for many things like books, supplies, and clothing. I also plan on using some to possibly take a summer course. Thanks again to the National Association of Puerto Rican/Hispanic Social Workers."
"This money will help me with part of the summer course I will be taking. This is a great help for me taking into account that my husband and I just recently bought a home and even this is a great blessing for our family, it is also a big financial challenge. This award is not only helping me but my entire family. Thank you so much"
