2019 Scholarship Recipient

Maria Gomez

I had the honor of being a Vegatinos scholarship recipient in 2019 during which I was a financially stressed graduate student. I was eligible to apply to become a “legal US resident” at this time, but I could not afford the hefty application fees. The Vegatinos scholarship helped me save enough money to apply for adjustment of my legal status. The support the Vegatinos scholarship provides for first-generation students (many of whom are undocumented) is exemplary and cannot be understated!

2020 Scholarship Recipient

Nayeli Vasquez

“My name is Nayeli Vazquez Montero and I was a recipient of the 2020 Vegatinos scholarship. I am grateful and blessed that they chose me to receive this scholarship. As a DACA recipient I had to pay for many of my school expenses and it was difficult to manage working part time taking 6 classes and being involved in Latinx organizations on campus. However, I was fortunate to be a part of amazing organizations that shared valuable resources and encouraged me to apply to scholarships like these!
Currently I work as a Staff Accountant and I am looking forward to continuing my education. My goal would be to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). I hope that throughout my career I can be a mentor and give guidance to my family and surrounding community to further their education. Eventually I would like to have my own practice where I can give back to my Latinx community. It’s all about paying it forward!
Thank you vegatinos for the support!”

2020 Scholarship Recipient

Juan Vieyra

“Hello, My name is Juan Vieyra and I was the recipient of the 2020 scholarship organized by Vegatinos. I was extremely blessed to receive the scholarship, because during that part of my education  I was struggling economically. This happened during the time I was completing my Spanish Master’s Degree. In addition, winning the $3,000 scholarship award,  helped me to pay for part of my school tuition, books, and travel expenses. Now, I am working as a high school teacher at EPIC De Cesar Chavez High School: helping the adult population to complete their high school diploma. Thank you Vegatinos, for the support and for helping me reach my professional goals.”
