As the Latino population in the United States continues to grow, the number of Latino school children grows as well. In fact, it is projected that Latino children will make up 25 percent of the school-age population by the year 2025. Currently, the proportion of Latino school administrators, as compared to students, is disproportionally low.
The mission of ALAS-Utah is to develop and support current aspiring Latino educators, helping them advance into positions of leadership. Accordingly, ALAS-Utah is offering multiple scholarships to aspiring Latino school educators.
