This initiative will recognize and celebrate scientists, entrepreneurs, educators, artists, and advocates, as each plays a vital role in the prominent and growing Hispanic cultural landscape.

In addition to the MiUnivisionario finalist selected by our audience, the nine remaining finalists will be chosen by an independent committee; the ten finalists will attend the UNIVISIONARIOS gala on September 22 in Washington, D.C. The aforementioned committee includes GLORIA and EMILIO ESTEFAN, GRAMMY award-winning artists; DOLORES HUERTA, community leader; JOSE ANTONIO TIJERINO, President and CEO of Hispanic Heritage Foundation; DR. JULIO FRENK, President of University of Miami; DR. PEDRO GREER, Professor, and Dean at Roseman University; MARK HUGO LOPEZ, Director of Research on Race and Ethnicity at the Pew Research Center; SYLVIA ACEVEDO, technology leader; ALBERTO MENDOZA, Director of the John S.
