The Consuelo Aguilar Scholarship Foundation Inc.



Anuncio de familia - Por favor acompaña nos.

Aquellxs que tuvieron el privilegio de conocer a Consuelo, saben que tan vibrante y soñadora era. Ella soñaba no solo para ella misma pero también por ayudar a otrxs, especialmente a la juventud de su comunidad. Ella solía decir, “el dinero no debe ser una barrera para la educación ni para el éxito. Hay dinero para la escuela, pero no te va a llegar de la nada. Tienes que aplicarte, sacar buenas notas, buscar becas y así se puede lograrlo.”
Nuestra familia tiene el honor de organizar un evento que celebra la vida de Consuelo diez anos después de hacer su transición al mundo ancestral. Ella vive en cada unx que la conoció, que compartió tiempo con ella, y que continúa luchando por mantener su legado vivo. Están cordialmente invitadxs a celebrar su vida y legado en una noche muy especial: iCONSUELO VIVE! Las ganancias de este evento irán a la beca “Consuelo Aguilar Scholarship” y les agradecemos que nos ayuden a mantener su legado vivo y siempre recordar que “La lucha sigue”.
Viernes, 22 de noviembre, 2019 en el Desert Diamond Casino, Nogales Highway
Sera nuestro honor recibirlxs esa noche y juntxs recordar la vida y legado de nuestra querida Consuelo!

Family Announcement - Please Join Us.

If you had the privilege of knowing Consuelo, you know she was a very vibrant person, full of hopes and dreams. She dreamed not only for herself but to help others, especially the youth of our community. She use to say, “Finances should not be a barrier to education or success. There is money for school, but it will not come find you. You have to apply yourself, work on your grades, research scholarships and it can be done.” Our family is honored to host an event to celebrate Consuelo’s life, ten years after she made her transition to the spirit world. She lives on in all of us who knew her, who spent time with her, and continue to keep her legacy alive. You are cordially invited to celebrate her life and legacy during a very special evening: iCONSUELO VIVE! The proceeds for this event will go toward the Consuelo Aguilar Scholarship and we thank you for helping keep her legacy alive and always remember, “La lucha sigue” (the struggle continues).
Friday November 22, 2019 at Desert Diamond Casino, Nogales Highway
It will be our honor to host you this evening as we remember the life and legacy of our beloved, Consuelo!
-The Aguilar Family


This website is dedicated to our Daughter, Sister, Tia, Mentor and friend; Consuelo Isabel Aguilar. Consuelo accomplished so many things in such a short time with one common denominator, her capacity to help others in need of help. Consuelo had a passion for culture heritage, traditions and social justice for the under privileged. She became involved in the MeCha movement in middle school and continued through high school and eventually the University of Arizona. We her family and friends are proud that people associate Consuelo's name and her accomplishments with inspiration and with an attitude of 'si se puede'.


The Aguilar Family would like to thank our family and scores of friends within the Tucson community including friends who helped from many other states. We thank all of you for your prayers and help for our family.


The objective of this website to raise awareness of an individual's potential to receive an education. Also it is the intent of this site to instill the passion for knowledge and cultural pride to succeed. The Aguilar family, with the support and help of many family and friends, has collaborated with The University of Arizona to establish the Consuelo Aguilar Scholarship Endowment fund. Consuelo's final wish was that something be created to bring about cancer awareness among the Mexican American and Spanish speaking community. For the past 9 years the Consuelo Aguilar Walk/Run event at the University of Arizona was established to raise funds for the Consuelo Aguilar Scholarship Endowment fund, administered by the UA-Mexican American Studies Department. We have proudly paid out approximately $5000 for five scholarships in Consuelo’s name since starting the annual Walk/Run event. This year (2019) we have incorporated within the State of Arizona and have become a nonprofit educational organization with 501-(c)-(3) status. We sincerely wish to increase the scholarships that are given in memory of Consuelo I. Aguilar on into perpetuity for future students.

Mission Statement
