"The LAEF scholarship has impacted my educational experience by giving me a network that I will be able to use during my college years and in my career. Through this network I am able to reach out to several people that I know are reliable and will always be willing to help me out. One of the wonderful people that I have met through this process is my current LAEF mentor Assael Ramirez. He truly is the greatest benefit of receiving such a scholarship."

Nicolette Peerman ~ Colorado State University

“Because of your support, I’ll be graduating in May 2019 with a degree in Civil Engineering.  Thank you for your monetary donations, time and energy you have invested in this scholarship and myself. This scholarship means hope, support, community, and an opportunity. I would not be where I am now without your support. I joined a handful of organizations and programs without having to worry about paying for college.”

Angela Ortiz ~ Metropolitan State University of Denver

"The LAEF scholarship has allowed me to continue my college education and has helped me to make college more affordable. I am a single mother trying hard to improve my family’s self-sufficiency and increasing my son’s chances of success. Being a scholarship recipient, this year has allowed me to reduce some of the financial stress I have experiences my whole life. I will be forever grateful for your generosity. ¡Gracias desde el fondo de mi corazon!"
