ITE Diversity Scholars – AZ Recipient for Inaugural Program!

We are very proud to recognize Jouselyn Lopez of Phoenix, Arizona as one of two of the inaugural ITE Diversity Scholars recipients! Sebastian Velazquez of Houston, Texas is the other recipient!

Over the past year, the ITE Diversity Scholars Committee and ITE Staff have worked to put together a meaningful and sustainable program for young scholars. Understanding that being a first-generation college student is incredibly challenging, this program is unique in that it is built on providing multifaceted support: mentoring, internships, ITE student chapter participation, and $4,000 in annual tuition support for up to five years of undergraduate work. The intent is to support at least one new recipient each year, with the opportunity to award additional scholars, should more support come forward. Both Jouselyn and Sebastian have incredible stories to tell, and shared them with ITE Journal.

Congratulations Jouselyn! We are looking forward to supporting you as an organization through your college career and into a full time career!
