Adrian Joseph Romo Memorial Scholarship

The Adrian Joseph Romo Memorial Scholarship was established in 2020 to honor Adrian Romo. Adrian graduated with honors from Humboldt State University in 2018, completing a degree in Kinesiology with emphasis in Pre-Physical Therapy and minors in Psychology and Native American Studies. Adrian was active in numerous clubs and activities across campus, acted as an Activities Student Assistant and even served as a mentor. However, it was his involvement in ITEPP that provided him with a home away from home and created important lifetime relationships. His family hopes to extend Adrian’s deep, life-long desire to help others and support his community through this scholarship, thereby assisting students in successfully completing their degree while they actively participate in ITEPP.

Eligibility:
• A current Cal Poly Humboldt undergraduate or graduate student, who will be attending the coming year as well.
• Must be a Native Indigenous student enrolled in ITEPP/ Native American Center for Academic Excellence for a minimum of one year
• Must display qualities of leadership and significant involvement with building and supporting the ITEPP student community
• Demonstrate financial need

Applications are due March 31.

Students chosen for support will receive at least $500 in financial support. 

Please contact the NCF team at any time if you have questions or need assistance in applying, nativecultures@hafoundation.org or (707) 267-9906.
