YAY! We reached our goal and then some! A very big THANK YOU to our donors for their generosity in our efforts to support two FACES health scholars. The recipients will be announced at the end of the month- stay tuned to hear their stories and their passions. #IAMTHEFUTURE
Established in 2000, FACES for the Future has served over 1,800 students all over California and is working on expanding nationally. We have some of the most diverse, resilient and passionate group of students, coming from an array of backgrounds and challenges. Read more about our “I Am the Future” Campaign”, in which showcases our health scholar voices.
This year, we are starting our very first scholarship fund to supplement and support two college-bound FACES health scholars as they advance to the next level of their health education. The proceeds will be divided into two $1,500 scholarships, and through an application process, be announced and awarded to the selected students.
Change the face of health. Donate today.
This year, the FACES community has experienced the loss of two beautiful souls. In their honors, each scholarship will commemorate each of their passions.
Loan Maas Memorial Scholarship
Loan Maas was a friend and a colleague. She was the Director of Early College at the Office of College and Career Readiness in the Denver Public School system and was helping us establish a new FACES program in Denver, CO. She was a major advocate for student equity. Her mission was working with minority students to achieve scholarships to further their college degree, providing them with the opportunities that she never had. We want to honor Loan and her tireless efforts in helping students achieve their highest dreams by supporting a FACES health scholar interested in pursuing a clinical career.
Elisabet Herrera Memorial Scholarship
Elisabet Herrera was a student in our Behavioral Health Undergraduate Summit in Summer, 2016. She was a passionate young woman pursuing a career in behavioral and mental health. Her mission was in helping others. Her friends knew her to be unique, sweet, responsible, professional and always willing to help anyone in need. We want to honor Elisabet by supporting a student just like herself, who is also dedicated to achieving a career in behavioral and mental health care.
