I'm so thankful for the impact my previous scholarship has had this year, making it possible for me to start my educational journey at this leading institution I worked so hard to get into. Cal Poly, Slo Freshman
Attending college, being educated and becoming the first in my family to graduate college are major aspirations of mine...For this reason, having the pleasure of receiving a renewal for this upcoming school year would be such a blessing. UC Merced Freshman
I see how proud my parents are of me and for having the courage of leaving home to become a better version of myself. Seeing how hard my parents work only motivates me to continue striving for my goals...My family isn't able to help me as much as they would like due to their income. This scholarship gave me the opportunity to help with my college expenses. CSU, Sonoma Freshman
I am grateful that MAEGA was able to help me financially this past academic year, as well as help me feel better about going to a college away from home. With this scholarship, I will be able to grow my love for Riverside even more and work towards getting my degree in neuroscience. UC Riverside Freshman
