Diego Renee Cardoza was a kind, wonderful, and smart young man who lost his life in July 2020 due to a traumatic brain injury.

Diego loved dancing and the outdoors and was looking forward to going to college before his untimely passing. Diego would have been graduating in May with the rest of his class and would have wanted his legacy to live on by helping his peers. Diego was loved by many in his short life and his absence is felt in his family and community.

This scholarship seeks to honor the memory of Diego Rene Cardoza by supporting students in Diego’s class.

Any high school senior in Texas may apply for this scholarship opportunity, but applicants planning to attend El Paso Community College, the University of Texas at El Paso, or a technical college in El Paso are preferred.

To apply, tell us about a significant change or experience that has occurred in your life, how you responded to it, what you learned, and what college you’re planning to attend.
