This scholarship was started with a goal to help all students receive a quality and equal education regardless of their immigration status. With the will of one student, then president of the Mexican American Student Association--Ricardo Ortega, and support from his family and friends the scholarship was started in the spring of 2006. Now his dream continues gaining support from Cal Poly Pomona administrators and students alike, who see the strength and importance of this scholarship and share its initial goal.
Must be a member of D.E.P.I.E. (Demanda Estudiantil Para la Igualdad Educacional) student club/organization
