Without a doubt, and for which I am grateful, the Fundación Intellectus scholarship has been an immense support for me, not only professionally, but also personally. After many years of study, receiving awards and being chosen to be an NIH Scholar has been a powerful incentive.

I have seen that the Foundations help a lot to solve the needs that we have as a society. Because of sincere intentions like yours, many of us can continue training as professionals.

It is very difficult for me to conceptualize in numbers what the Intellectus Foundation has given me during the past years. However, it is very easy for me to recognize that they have been a pillar in my academic success.
Darielys Mejías
Through the last two years I have helped different communities, not only as a future doctor, but also as a citizen in multiple community initiatives. Having been helping the Santa Elvira community during my first year of medicine, revived my interest in serving different communities around the island and being part of the mobilization of decentralized medical services.
