In August of 2020, we tragically lost Maida Brkanovic, our beloved daughter, who had a contagious enthusiasm for life.
Maida loved helping others. She cared deeply about humans and animals. Some of her help was directed towards juvenile diabetes, cancer research, MS research and support, the elderly who lived by themselves, and all animal welfare. She did many walks, bakes, and volunteered her free time.
In light of her selfless attitude and to keep her wonderful legacy alive, the Maida Brkanovic Memorial Scholarship will support one student who emulates Maida’s lifestyle through their own selfless actions.
To be eligible, you must be a recent immigrant and/or a first-generation high school or undergraduate student in any field of study. You will have the opportunity to write about your experience as a recent immigrant and/or a first-generation student and how that’s influenced your beliefs about life.

The winner will be publicly announced on Nov 6, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
