The Mendoza Foundation Fund was created to provide scholarships to students who are graduating high school or entering their freshman, sophomore, junior or senior year of undergraduate studies. Students must attend a four-year college or university on a full-time basis.
Eligibility is restricted to students who are or who have graduated from East Aurora High School or West Aurora High School and who are pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). High school students must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Undergraduate students must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.8 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
