This workshop is intended to support all self identified Chicana and Latina women interested in applying to the Chicana Latina Foundation Scholarship before the deadline of March 31, 2018.

During this workshop, you will be guided on the application process for the 2018 CLF Scholarship and you will have the opportunity to connect with other Chicanx and Latinx in academia. Two CLF alumni will facilitate the workshop, and share their experiences and the importance of one’s personal narrative.
