Andrew Perez was a beloved son who passed away too soon due to suicide and mental illness.
Andrew enjoyed being active outdoors and used biking, basketball, and skateboarding to cope with stress. Although Andrew eventually lost his battle with his mental health, he would have wanted to help others overcome their own struggles with mental illness.
This scholarship seeks to honor the life of Andrew Perez by helping students push through their mental illnesses and pursue their education.
Any BIPOC high school or undergraduate student who struggles with mental health may apply for this scholarship.
