Thank you to everyone who helped us reach and exceed our goal of supporting students through the Roy Casanova Endowed Scholarship! Our work to build his fund will continue and you can still make a gift by visiting this link.
Watch the video for a personal message from Irma Casanova!
Irma Casanova established a scholarship fund in memory of her husband, Roy Casanova, in order to provide financial assistance to students at EMU. Over the years, the scholarship has helped so many EMU students and now it needs our tax-deductible support to continue this legacy promise.
EMU Latino Alumni Chapter
The purpose of the Latino Alumni Chapter is to promote Latino cultural awareness, provide support, to ensure academic excellence among Latino students and serve as a bridge between EMU and the community at large. They also help students through scholarships such as the Carlos El Jefe Endowed Scholarship, the EMU Latino Alumni Chapter Endowed Scholarship and the Roy Casanova Endowed Scholarship.
The EMU Latino Alumni Chapter became official February 6, 1999, through a group of dedicated alumni who had a vision to enhance the university's commitment to Latino students and bring awareness to the uniqueness of being Latino. The chapter has collaborated with various University departments in the recruitment and retention of Latinos, supporting the EMU Latino students and doing community outreach.
