Doctoral student Ana Guadalupe Reyes received a $20,000 fellowship from the National Board for Certified Counselors that will provide funding and training and will facilitate her service to underserved minority populations.
Reyes is a doctoral student in the College of Education counseling program specializing in equine-assisted psychotherapy and LGBTQ+ issues. The fellowship will help her receive further training and complete her dissertation in equine-assisted psychotherapy with underrepresented populations. She is one of 22 students selected for the fellowship.
"I'm the daughter of two immigrants," Reyes says. "This fellowship recognizes the sacrifices my parents made to provide me with a better education."
