Each year Future Hispanic Leaders of America, Community Council of Idaho, College of Western Idaho and others partner to host the Hispanic Healthcare and Technology Careers Conference. Colleges from around the state attend to offer students scholarships to pursue careers in the health and technology fields. Check our calendar for this yearly event.

Ismael Fernandez Memorial Scholarship

Ismael Fernandez had a passion for community service and involvement in government. As a freshman, he served as a Page for the Idaho House of Representatives. He was appointed to the Idaho Juvenile Justice Commission when he was only 17. At age 19, he was elected to the Wilder City Council, becoming the youngest elected official in Idaho. Just prior to his tragic death in a car accident in 2017, he had been appointed to the Idaho Suicide Prevention Council. His family and friends have established this scholarship fund in hopes of assisting other students who share Ismael’s passion for community service.

Proceeds from the HHTCC are utilized to send students to professional development opportunities and nationwide conferences. This last summer a group of students traveled to Seattle to visit University of Washington, Boeing, and Microsoft. This next summer we are sending students to the UnidosUS conference.


"I am so thankful to have gone on this trip! I learned so much and met so many new friends! Before this trip I wasn’t sure if I wanted to study just business, but now I’ve realized that I really want to challenge myself into a career in the STEM field! Our tour guide from Microsoft made a really good point about how our world is evolving so much with new technology. "

— Nallely Gonzalez, STEM Trip student
