Complete the Dream
The Foundation also funds a scholarship for students who are in their last quarter and need financial assistance to graduate or complete their program/certificate. This scholarship was established to help students who have encountered a recent (occurring in the last 3 months) unexpected and unforeseeable financial hardship that makes it impossible for them to graduate.
Hernandez-Foy Second Chance Endowed Scholarship
This scholarship recognizes the courage and fortitude demonstrated by those individuals who have lost everything but continue to strive toward a better life. In offering this award, Dr. Hernandez and Ms. Foy wish to provide encouragement and a "second chance" to students with histories of incarceration or homelessness. The scholarship is intended to help provide an opportunity for these students to experience the transformative benefits of higher education. The donors hope that in receiving the award, students will in turn be inspired to pay it forward and help others to achieve their aspirations as well.
