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.
