Michael Valdivia was a son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend and uncle with an infectious laugh and an incredibly generous heart. He was a beacon of love and support to everyone who met him.

His compassion led him to help anyone in need, and after spending just a few minutes with him, it became easy to feel the immense amount of love that he had to give to all who needed it. It was a love that you could feel to your core. 

The Michael Valdivia Scholarship was made to continue Michael’s legacy of giving to those in need of support while using a kind and compassionate heart to do so. 

This scholarship seeks to support male students who have dealt with anxiety and/or depression and are passionate about taking the next steps to achieve their goals through the use of higher education. 

Any male high school senior or undergraduate student who has experience living with the impacts of anxiety and/or depression in their daily life may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about yourself, your mental health journey, and the obstacles that you’ve overcome in order to pursue your future goals of receiving an education.
