The Nydia Berdugo Memorial Scholarship Fund

This fund is in honor of my mother, Nydia Berdugo, who passed away from thyroid cancer on January 11, 2014. Despite her long battle of over 20 years, my mom continued to help others by donating to charities that helped children afflicted by cancer. She also helped families in need in Colombia by donating clothes, food, and toys. She was always helping others, even in the face of adversity, and this is my way to keep her legacy alive. She was also my biggest supporter and my source of inspiration.

The recipient of this scholarship will be a female high school student from Brick Township, pursuing a degree in Arts Education, who demonstrates financial need. This young lady will be one who helps others, exudes compassion, and has a strong work ethic.

For every donation made, I will donate $5.00. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
