Our 2020 – 2021 scholarship recipients include 28 previous scholarship recipients and 36 new recipients.

For the first time, the Foundation was able to award several large scholarships, some awards representing 100% of the recipient’s tuition. Awards were based on an assessment of each applicant’s financial need and academic performance, with a focus on applicants who were studying subjects in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs.
