The scholarship is named after Dr. Laura Rendón, a nationally renowned educator who, for eight years, served as a 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 three students whose academic merit demonstrate these same virtues that will impact the Chicano/Latino community.

CLFSA is accepting applications for the 2019 Redón Scholarship. The deadline to apply is February 1, 2019.
