The Herrera Internship provides scholarships to Hispanic, female students who complete an internship with the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC). It was created by Dr. Denise Herrera to honor her mother (Yolanda Herrera) and two grandmothers (Reyna Herrera and Helen Montoya) who did not have the opportunity to pursue higher education. As a Native New Mexican, Dr. Herrera has dedicated much of her academic and professional career to the advancement of underrepresented groups in higher education. As a participant in several diversity programs herself, Dr. Herrera has mentored students from elementary through the postdoctoral level; this internship is intended to honor that tradition of “lifting others while we climb” and paying it forward.
