The Dr. Ramon Tallaj Foundation scholarship recipients reflect geographic, economic, social and cultural diversity; mirroring the intrinsic dignity of the person as fundamental human right. The dignity of an individual cannot be denied.
In our foundation, we affirm the inalienable right to life, to family, to foster a social climate favorable to integral development, solidarity, and mutual appreciation.
We do not know if this is the end of history or just the end of this history. Today, it seems that the “no future” stories that underpinned—especially in the 1960s—the emergence of postmodernity have come true because humanity is living through a moment of convulsions, uncertainty, and changes. We still do not know if we live in an era of change or a change of era.
