DU Latinx Alumni Affinity Scholarship Provides Community and Opportunity
Aron Rodriguez (MAcc ’20, BA ’19, BS ’19) was the first in his family to go to college. When he came to the University of Denver as a first-year student, however, he found that he was at a disadvantage in learning to navigate such a complex environment. Through the DU Latinx Alumni Affinity (DULAA) and the scholarship they offered, he found financial support and a community that walked alongside him. Now a graduate with three degrees in accounting and political science from DU, he mentors undergraduate students so they have the support they need in their own journeys.
“I loved all my donors and am so grateful for them,” said Rodriguez. “People who give to the DULAA Scholarship are giving to something that will directly touch students’ lives. This is support that they really need. You’re giving students the opportunity to truly focus on school and have that college experience that everyone hopes to have.”
