Once a Cisneros Scholar, Always a Cisneros Scholar

The Cisneros Scholarship is for four years, but Cisneros Scholars are part of the Cisneros familia forever. Scholars leave GW with the skills and expertise to go on to make an impact in their communities through a broad range of industries and through continued study.
