Brittney Davis

“Being an Aqua Scholar means much more than receiving a scholarship, though the funding is necessary and life-changing for students. Being an Aqua Scholar means gaining intimate access to phenomenal and impactful servant leaders from whom we can learn much about creating change and fostering community.”

Brittney R. Davis, Ph.D. Candidate, Community Well-Being Program | University of Miami
