2017 Scholarship Recipients

Chloe Nelson is an art history student
Thanks to your support I will be able to attend my dream school of University of California, Berkeley where I will be earning my degree in History of Art with an emphasis in modern European art. After I earn my undergraduate degree, I aspire to obtain a graduate degree and then possibly a doctorat. Your scholarship will aid in the cost of schooling but will be also applied to study abroad in possibly Italy! As an art history major, I feel like it's very important to see the art pieces that I have studied in books and online in real life.

Renata Zacarias is a Culinary Arts student
By awarding me the Dante Alighieri Society of Santa Cruz scholarship, you have lightened my monthly costs, which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, which is learning. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me, and that I can work and be a leading member of the local culinary scene.
