Awarded Scholarship to take Verbling Spanish Language Classes
“I was awarded a scholarship for Spanish classes. I’m a little nervous but also very excited. Learning Spanish has been something I have wanted to do for a long time. Being able to communicate with sisters in Spanish would be very helpful in both my Mercy community as well as the Giving Voice community.”

Awarded Scholarship to attend the Instituto Cultural Spanish Language School in Oaxaca, MX
“I am deeply humbled and filled with gratitude for this generous gift. It is with God's grace that I embark on this Providential Journey of embracing who God created me to be. I plan to travel to Oaxaca, Mexico several times during this year to The Instituto Cultural Spanish Language School which offers Spanish language and cultural immersion. I will be learning to read, write and refine my Spanish tongue. I believe I will be a better servant to all God's people because of this amazing opportunity to immerse myself and reclaim my heritage.”
Awarded Scholarship to attend the Collaborative Leadership Development Program
“I am very grateful to receive this scholarship to attend the Collaborative Leadership Development Program. CLDP will help to provide me the training, along with a multicultural perspective, to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence I need to grow as a leader in my ministry and in my community. I look forward to the next 18 months of gaining self-knowledge to better serve all of God's people!"

Awarded Scholarship to produce videos on contemporary issues in religious life.
“I am so grateful to Giving Voice for their support of a project that has been on my heart and mind for over five years. The scholarship will provide stipends for each speaker on a video series. The video series is to support the emergent in religious life and to provide solid theological, spiritual and psychological underpinnings for our life – and freely available to all. The speakers will be selected to allow for new voices to be heard on topics important to our lives – and to help cultivate a new generation of voices into the future. I am deeply touched by the support of Giving Voice for this project and I look forward to being a part of the Spirit-filled energy generated from this collaborative project.”
