"Thanks to financial assistance from the Latino Generations, I am able to attend UC Davis and be academically and socially involved." — Ruben Sobreyra

The Latino Generations Scholarship Program essentially began in 2016 with a single gift from Fr. Larry Betrozoff, $10,000 which was awarded to eight Latinas who graduated from San Benito High School. Grants are awarded to Latino students who possess an economic need and will be attending either a two-year or four-year university or a certified vocational training institution.
