About the Carillo Fellowship
The Luis Carrillo Endowed Fellowhip was established in 2003. The Carrillo Endowed Fellowship fellowship provides financial aid to Social Welfare graduate students who are from Puerto Rico or of Puerto Rican ancestry, with a preference for those who are bilingual (Spanish-English) and who intend to work within the Puerto Rican and/or Hispanic communities. The annual award amount is currently $2,500.
Luis Carrillo received his MSW in 1956. He was a school social worker for the San Francisco Unified School District and also worked for City College. He received a Fulbright Award from 1965 to 1967, spent in Latin America. He self-published his life story under the name of Luis Carrillo Miranda, “A Child of No Importance: The Life of a Puerto Rican Dreamer,” which is available in the Social Research Library.
