Here from 2023 Pedrozzi Scholar, Jason Cruz. Jason is currently attending the University of Hawaii at Monoa. He states, “I plan to double major in marine biology and biotechnology on a pre-veterinarian track. The Pedrozzi Scholarship will help to fulfill these dreams as it eases a bit of the financial burden for my undergraduate studies. I take my education seriously and understand that it is quite a financial investment in my future. Being awarded the Pedrozzi scholarship gives me confidence going into a heavy STEM coursework load knowing that others saw potential in my ability to tackle my future endeavors successfully and were willing to invest in it.”
