10,000 Degrees Santana Scholars
Congratulations to Alex Davila! He graduated from University of California at Santa Cruz. Alex appreciates the support he's received, “I’d like to say a huge thanks to 10,000 Degrees for assisting me throughout my endeavors at UCSC. I am honored to be a part of the 10,000 Degrees Family.“
Students from low-income backgrounds, like Alex, have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, facing increasing obstacles to attain their college degrees.
Carlos Santana's Milagro Foundation and 10,000 Degrees have teamed up to ease the college journey for students just like Alex by creating a cohort of Santana Scholars - first-generation college students from low-income backgrounds who will receive a grant from Carlos Santana’s Milagro Foundation and comprehensive support throughout this crisis and for the next four years, from 10,000 Degrees Fellows, near-peer mentors who have doubled down on assisting students since the pandemic began.
