The Consuelo Aguilar Scholarship Foundation Inc.

 


 

Dedication

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'.


Gratitude

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.


Objective

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.
