Who Can Apply: The Alberto Moreno Scholarship Fund was established in 2002 to honor the memory of the donor’s grandfather and support others who share Alberto’s devotion to learning. Alberto Moreno became a naturalized citizen in the early 1900s. He had few resources to provide for his large family, in part because he had been unable to acquire a formal education. Nonetheless, he fostered in his children a respect and a hunger for learning and an appreciation for what education can provide for those who work hard and honestly.
Sacrifices were many, often food and clothing were scarce, yet each child was instilled with these values. The entire family worked hard to create opportunities for the pursuit of education and to support each other as they obtained the education each wanted. Though other luxuries were forfeited, each child grew into an accomplished adult armed with a master’s degree and a commitment to contribute to their family, their society and their country.
