Scholarships help students focus on their studies

"I have worked hard for many years to have an opportunity like this."

Our students face headwinds with the rising cost-of-living in Santa Cruz County and scholarships are making it possible for them to devote their time and energy to their studies. Darren is grateful for his High Achievers Scholarship Award. “The prospect of having a medical career to serve my community is extremely exciting and motivating for me. Receiving this support will further motivate me to ensure that this goal is reached so that I can help the lives of others,” he shared.
