Laura I. Rendón Scholarship Program

Arizona State University’s Chicano/Latino Faculty and Staff Association (CLFSA) selects five students for the endowed Laura Rendón Scholarship each academic year. Scholarship amounts vary between $2,500 and $5,000 depending on need.

Dr. Rendón is a nationally renowned educator, who for eight years, served as Professor in ASU’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. As a professor, mentor and active member of ASU’s Chicano/Latino faculty community, she taught graduate level courses on Cultural Pluralism in Education, Professional Seminar in Higher Education and Student Diversity in Higher Education. She was also a member of the Research Faculty with the ASU’s Hispanic Research Center.

Upon Dr. Rendón’s departure from ASU, and through her generosity, CLFSA endowed its scholarship in her name. Each year, CLFSA pays tribute to her leadership; character and academic excellence by awarding scholarships to students whose academic merit demonstrate these same virtues that will impact the Chicano/Latino community.

To be considered for the scholarship for the following academic year, the CLFSA Laura Rendón Scholarship application must be completed and submitted online by the due date listed below.  Also, a completed FAFSA must be submitted by the new priority date of January 1 in order to be considered for the scholarship.
