About UPRAA's Scholarship Fund

UPRAA’s primary purpose is to establish an organization in which University of Puerto Rico Alumni and Friends located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area converge in fraternal union to foster common interests, support charitable and scholarship programs, and promote the educational goals of the University of Puerto Rico system.

During the past 15 years, UPRAA has awarded over $180,000 in scholarships to Hispanic students who have demonstrated a commitment to public service, academic merit, and financial need. Our charity programs have also supported the Carlos Rosario Charter School in Washington DC, the HOME organization in Fredericksburg VA, the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia, the Family Services, Inc, in Maryland and the “Centro de Servicios Abriendo Nuevos Surcos” in Puerto Rico.

UPRAA is a volunteer-based organization; all funds raised go directly to scholarships and charity.
