Who Can Apply:
- An unfortunate reality that comes with living in the United States, is the heavy prevalence of mass shootings occurring each year. In 2022 alone, there were an overwhelming 531 mass shootings counted by the Gun Violence Archive. Each one of these events wrongly took the loved ones of so many American families, leaving them with grief of an untimely loss.
- Eduardo Uvaldo is remembered by his friends and family as a delightful presence who was always accompanied by others. His death was a tragedy, and unfortunately not a singular occurrence. This year, more than 534 people lost their lives to a mass shooting incident.
- While we wait for immediate reform to be made, this scholarship will honor Eduardo Uvaldo’s life by supporting undergraduate students who also fell victim to losing a loved one due to a mass shooting. Students that share a similar story and have at least a 3.0 GPA are eligible to apply for this scholarship. One scholarship will be awarded to an undergraduate student and one scholarship will be awarded to a graduate student.
Submission: To apply, please answer how has the loss of a loved one, due to mass shooting, changed your life? How have you managed your grief while also juggling your school workload?
