Recipients of the Saint Pedro Poveda Endowed Scholarship
“When we first established the Saint Pedro Poveda Endowed Scholarship in 2012, we drew inspiration from Saint Pedro Poveda’s own evangelizing ministry with the poor and his work of empowering young girls who lived in the caves of Guadix, Spain through education. We wanted to share the good news of a liberating, and empowering education providing a bright future through this scholarship supported by our own members, relatives, and friends. In this way, we share the legacy of Saint Pedro Poveda who wants the Teresian Association* members to significantly offer themselves and make a difference in the fields of education and culture.”
