University of California, Riverside student Susana Sanchez is one of 25 students nationwide who has received the highly competitive Rockefeller Brothers Fund Fellowship for Aspiring Teachers of Color for 2008-09.

These fellowships are awarded annually to outstanding minority undergraduate students in the arts and sciences wishing to pursue graduate degrees in education and to teach in American public elementary or secondary schools.

Sanchez, a third-year student pursuing a bachelor's in Chicano studies and a minor in history, cites her experience as a tutor for the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program as an important step toward reaching her goal to be an educator.
