On February 1st, the Susan and Michael Dell Foundation released its list of roughly 1,000 Dell Scholarship semifinalists, and we are so excited to share that we have three (3) AVID Seniors in the running! Three hundred (300) students will each go on to win a $20,000 scholarship, a laptop, and other resources for college success. It is a tremendous honor to have multiple students make it to the final selection round, so please join us in extending a huge congratulations to:
- Hector Cazarez
- Isabel Martinez, and
- Amberlyn Torres.
If interested, more information on the scholarship can be found on the Dell Scholars website. Thank you so much for supporting all of our AVID students’ college dreams.
