The first recipient of the LatPro-MAES Scholarship, Lillian Acosta is a junior at the University of New Mexico majoring in Electrical Engineering with a minor in mathematics. Born in Mexico, Lillian came to the U.S. at the age of 10, and she is the first member of her family to attend college. LatPro is happy to be able to help her get one step closer to graduation.
“I am extremely thankful to LatPro for the $2,500 scholarship that I received at the MAES conference in Houston, Texas,” writes Ms. Acosta. “The United States has given my family a second chance to achieve our dreams and for that reason I am determined to become a professional that helps the U.S succeed and be a role model for my Hispanic community.”
