Not everyone is fortunate enough to receive a formal education, but being self-taught by reading newspapers, books, and seeking out knowledge can expand your horizons regardless.
This is what Jorge A. Quizhpi did. Acquiring knowledge allows you to have better opportunities and succeed in various areas of life. As a way to honor his perseverance and search for knowledge, the Jorge A. Quizhpi Memorial Scholarship will support a Hispanic high school student.
Hispanic high school seniors are eligible to apply if they have a GPA between the range of 3.2 to 3.8. Preference will be given to students of Ecuadorian descent.
To apply, write a short essay, in Spanish, about a historical event and how our world can apply the lessons learned then to our world today.
