NTLAPA has provided me with a sense of community. I was fortunate to be awarded their scholarship, along with mentoring opportunities, and amazing role model. They share my passion for helping the Hispanic community in Dallas. I look forward to becoming a member of NTLAPA when I become a physician.
I am honored to have been selected to receive this “Making a Difference” scholarship from NTLAPA/NCF among so many talented applicants. In this final year of medical school, this scholarship will undoubtedly be a breath of fresh air and help me with my residency application and interview expenses as I apply for my dream specialty of family medicine. This scholarship shows how the medical community supports current medical students in North Texas to pursue their dreams and ultimately will allow me to become one step closer to becoming a physician to work with underserved patient populations. In the future, I want to continue this legacy to give back to my community and help aspiring pre-med and medical students as others have done for me.
This scholarship from NTLAPA will assist my family tremendously as we navigate this new and exciting time in my training. I am honored an humbled to have been chosen this year and look forward to paying forward this generous gift through advocacy and outreach to my Latin American community.
As a Latino medical student, it’s reassuring to know that I have the full support of the Latino community by having the opportunity to apply to the NTLAPA scholarship. Out of the many obstacles that students can face while on their path to pursue a higher education, the financial burden can be one of the biggest ones. The NTLAPA scholarship will help me leap over one of the many obstacles left on my path to attain my MD.
I am very honored to receive such a generous gift. This endowment will help me accomplish so much in the coming school year as a I prepare for the next part of my journey. Now that I have moved back to Dallas to attend the Louise Herrington School of Nursing your donation will take me that much closer to my ultimate goal of becoming a nurse and helping those in need
Thanks to the NTLAPA Make a Difference scholarship, I have the ability to continue my efforts to improve my community’s health by permitting me to focus on my education and purchase equipment and resources that will help further my education. It is my hope that I can inspire others to make a difference in their community—all that is needed is to act and hope you can inspire others to follow suit
Thank you, NTLAPA, for giving me the opportunity to give back to the Latino community through my continuing medical education and community outreach. Already, this scholarship has connected me with competent and compassionate physicians committed to improving the health and vitality of underserved populations
Thank you NTLAPA for giving back to the community and helping aspiring Latino physicians reach their goals
This scholarship not only brings me joy in the sense that my volunteer work is appreciated but now I have peace at mind knowing that I will at least have some funds for my expenses that might come along the way into residency
