Six of the recipients are bilingual in Spanish. Seven are focusing on elementary education, four are focusing on secondary education and the rest are focusing on both elementary and secondary education.

Nusenda's roots are in education. They work with community partners to ensure that educators are supported and students get the help they need to succeed.
