The proceeds of our events go toward the funding of the League’s Scholarship Program. The League commenced its mission in December of 2008 and had its first Scholarship Gala Dinner Dance in August of 2009. As of August 2018, the League has presented 99 scholarships of $1,000.00 each to undergraduate Puerto Rican / Hispanic women selected for their academic excellence and service to the community.
