The Ariana R. Ulloa Scholarship Fund was established at the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio to honor the legacy of its namesake, Ariana Ulloa, a native of Mexico. Ariana moved to Athens in 1986 and began working for the Hocking College Department of International Programs in 1990, eventually moving into the position of Director. She had a reputation for her kind and encouraging nature and was known to many students as “Mamá Ariana.”
Ariana passed away in December 2002 but her legacy continues through this endowed scholarship fund, set up at the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio and created through the contributions of Ariana’s family, friends and students.
In keeping with her work in international programs, the scholarships are offered to international students or students pursuing a degree in international studies.
