This scholarship award is truly meaningful to me because it has inspired me to help others by giving back to the community.  I sincerely hope that I will be able to help and encourage other students to pursue their education and career, just as you have inspired me.

As a recipient of the Amado M. Pena, Sr. Endowed Scholarship for the 2016-2017 academic year, I would like to thank you for this support.  Your generosity and contributions toward the continuation of my academic endeavors are highly appreciated.

I would like to sincerely thank you for your support once again for my scholarship.  I have continued to study theatre and I will graduate this Spring from UNM with a BA in Theatre Studies.  I plan to pursue a professional theatre career and I am grateful for the support of wonderful organizations like yours that continue to encourage art in all forms.  With the reduction of the Lottery Scholarship, your financial support is not only appreciated but essential.  I am especially grateful as an artist because going to school full time and the rehearsal time required to be in shows kept me from working.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

This scholarship has enabled me to pursue my degree without accumulating any academic debt.  It is such a relief to focus my energies entirely on my studies without any additional finacial stress.  I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity to further my studies at U T Austin.
