Student Scholar Profiles
Flora Braganza Memorial Scholarship
Growing up in Nigeria, I had become accustomed to seeing people lose their lives to minor ailments due to the inadequacy of the healthcare system. This kindled a desire in me to work towards providing health solutions globally. My ultimate goal is to get into the research based aspect of medicine by obtaining a MD/PhD degree.
Mark L. Eisenberg Memorial Scholarship
My passion for computer science originates from my lifelong enthusiasm for problem solving. I will use my education to develop We Code a non-profit that serves underprivileged urban youth helping them to hone their problem-solving skills with programming. I am thankful for this scholarship.
Dr. Glenn Leuning Scholarship
I’m committed to gaining a solid understanding of chemistry and becoming a successful pediatrician. As part of my career goals, I’m determined to travel around the world with Doctors Without Borders organization to provide medical aid to people affected by epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care.
Miranda Lux Scholarship
Even though I have had financial burdens, my life as a flute player at Chabot College has been the best days of my life. I plan to transfer to a CSU with a good music program, and then eventually apply to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music for graduate studies. I want to become a professional flute player who inspires people to earn degrees in what they love.
Machine Tool Technology
Woody Phillips-Machine Technology Scholarship
A former coworker was in the process of converting his street car into a race capable machine. He had purchased a set of expensive brakes, and was heartbroken to see that they would not fit on his car. I drew up some sketches, made mockups, and wrote down lots of dimensions from the brake assembly. The car is still being finished for an upcoming event, but the brakes fit and work properly. I call that a success.
Edward E. and Donna L. Martins Scholarship
There were many times when I wanted to give up on my education because of the financial stresses of being a full time student and part time worker. But my passion for my declared major, as well as my passion to better my future kept me going. It is scholarships like this that help students like me succeed in school. It shows us that there are many people in the world who want to see us prosper.
