Joshua Gomes Memorial Scholarship

The Joshua Gomes Memorial Scholarship Fund aims to lay a path for hope for young adults like Josh – those with HIV/AIDS – by providing academic scholarships to universities of their choice. Each $1,000 scholarship we award will give the recipient a strong message: You are Worth Investing in
Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of merit and need. We hope to allow Josh’s love for learning and community service to continue through another young adult who also exhibits these qualities.
