 I am writing to share a special message with you and the members of AAUW of Laguna Beach. Because AAUW is one of the leading providers of graduate educational funding, Ishah Dominguez asked for financial support to further her education.  Thanks to the Laguna Beach (CA) Branch/Dorothy F. Backus Fund, we were able to help her achieve her dreams.

    Ishah is one of more than 200 women who received a fellowship or grant from AAUW for the 2016-17 academic year. Like her fellow recipients, Ishah’s dedication, imagination, and work promise to forge new paths in research, improve the quality of life for others, and tackle the educational and social barriers facing women worldwide. The work she does today will make a difference for all of us in the future.

   As the proud and grateful recipient of financial support from this fund Ishah wrote the attached thank you letter. For more insight about this intelligent and passionate recipient, please visit: http://www.aauw.org/aauw_check/fellowships_directory/ and search for “Ishah Dominguez.”
