Congratulations to Julius and Lizbeth as the 2020 Scholarship Recipients

The Friends of Scott Foundation Scott Delgadillo College Scholarship will be awarded to a cancer patient or cancer survivor based on financial need and personal hardship. The Scott Delgadillo College Scholarship Committee will select the recipient. Education was important to Scott. It was his dream to one day attend the University of Notre Dame. In his memory, FOS offers assistance to individuals who have been diagnosed with childhood cancer and who chose to continue their education. We realize the impact that cancer can have in the pursuit of higher education and it is our goal to facilitate this process by providing assistance to get them started on their educational endeavors.
