Wurzweiler student Charlene Garcia was one of twelve graduate students awarded an annual scholarship for the coming year 2014-2015 by the Latino Social Work Task Force. According to the LSWTF, the funds are raised as a result of the LSWTF Annual Dinner and other fundraising events, as well as support of the Hispanic Federation with a $10,000 contribution toward the scholarship fund. Each student receives $2,000 along with a scholarship commitment from their individual school.

As of 2014, the LSWTF has provided funding of nearly $450,000 for 95 scholarships for 74 Latino social work students, including commitments by the graduate schools of social work.

Wurzweiler congratulates Charlene Garcia and all of the other recipients on this outstanding accomplishment!
