Developing Leaders of Integrity

Leaders of Integrity Award

From 2003 to 2008, DAPF awarded 35 scholarships to students selected by ASPIRA affiliates who demonstrated leadership abilities and a commitment to community service.  After undergoing a strategic planning process in 2009, DAPF decided to broaden its efforts to include other youth serving organizations, who would select Puerto Rican and Latino recipients, and renamed the scholarship the Leaders of Integrity Award.  This award is given to Puerto Rican and Latino youth for their dedication and leadership in improving their local community while striving to attain higher education.  Since 2006, DAPF has awarded $1,000 to each student in light of their educational and professional pursuits.  The first annual Leaders of Integrity Award were distributed in 2010.
