Foundation National Programs
Consuelo W. Gosnell Memorial
Consuelo W. Gosnell Memorial Scholarships are awarded to master's
degree candidates in social work who have demonstrated a commitment
to working with, or who have a special affinity with, American Indian/Alaska
Native and Hispanic/Latino populations. Candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to working with public or voluntary nonprofit agencies or with local grassroots groups in the United States are also eligible.
Gosnell Scholarships were established through a bequest of Consuelo
Gosnell, a social work practitioner who was born in Ciudad Juarez,
Mexico and died in Texas in 1987. Gosnell was a champion of civil
and human rights and worked diligently to improve conditions
for critically under served American Indians and Latinos in the
Southwest. Gosnell practiced for many years in federal agencies,
including the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare
and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
Gosnell Scholarships are awarded based on the projected annual earnings
to the fund and contributions. To make a donation, click below.
