In November of 2016, our dear friend Jose Montanez passed away suddenly. 

We met Jose at a foster home in our community where I was volunteering, and he eventually became part of our family. Jose was passionate about music, the arts, and loved working with his hands. He was also very giving of what little he had, always helping those around him in need.  To honor Jose’s memory, and continue his spirit of giving, we started the Jose Montanez Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded to young adults pursuing any level of college or trade school certification. 

This scholarship is specifically for high school seniors who are graduating in 2023 and will go on to pursue undergraduate degree or trade school certification. Preference will be given to candidates who spent time in the foster care system and/or are earning a degree in music or the arts. To apply, write about how you will use your college degree or trade certification to make a positive impact in your community.
