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.

However, it was his involvement in ITEPP that provided him with a needed familial space and created important lifetime relationships. His family hopes to extend Adrian’s deep, life-long desire to help other and support his community through this scholarship, thereby assisting students in successfully completing their degree while they actively participate in ITEPP.

Eligibility:
