Dreams for Schools (DFS) is excited to announce the winner of the Summer 2021 Dreams for Schools STEAM Scholarship Award presented by Neudesic.
The STEAM Scholarship Award program, made possible with the support of our corporate partner, Neudesic, will be available to STEAM undergraduates working as DFS Instructors while they pursue their career goals in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, or Math (STEAM). Applications are received on a quarterly basis and 1-2 scholarships will be awarded once a quarter.
Both DFS and Neudesic believe in nurturing the next generation of STEAM talent by providing professional development, vocational opportunities, and support for academic excellence through this scholarship program. This need and merit based scholarship is intended to help DFS Instructors advance their trajectory through STEAM career pathways.
We are excited to announce the scholarship recipient of the DFS STEAM Scholarship Award program presented by Neudesic for Summer 2021: Jose Pineda!
Jose Pineda is a first generation college student who hopes to continue his education at UCLA after graduating from Cypress College, where he is studying General Mathematics. In the future, he will continue to delve into research opportunities that give back to the community that raised him, and with the aid of this scholarship award, he is looking forward to finally purchasing a personal vehicle for himself. In working for DFS, Jose’s passion for teaching continues to grow, and he is looking forward to the opportunities in the education field that continue to open up to him.
The entire DFS team would like to express our sincerest gratitude to Neudesic and their team members who participated in the scholarship review committee. Neduesic’s generosity and volunteer support is making a meaningful impact to advance education equity through DFS’ STEAM programs.
