Somos Undergraduate Development Award
The Chican@ & Latin@ Studies Program offers the Somos Undergraduate Development Award annually to students enrolled in its academic programs who belong to minority groups historically underserved by higher education in the United States. The award is supported by the generosity of Dr. Andrea-Teresa Arenas with proceeds from the sale of her book Somos Latinas, and by her husband, former Chancellor John Wiley. Each Spring, the Program will award up to $1500.00 for at least one student professional, academic, or artistic initiative, preferably one to be carried out during the following summer or the following academic year. Examples of eligible student initiatives include travel to professional meetings, internships, research projects, travel to collections, and creative projects. Applications will be screened by a committee of CLSP faculty and staff who will determine the award winner or winners.
