Gifts to the Guadalupe Diaz Scholarship Fund honor the legacy and memory of Guadalupe Diaz. This fund is intended to help students with financial need pursue a degree in biology or the physical sciences. Preference for the scholarship will be given to women of Hispanic/Latino(a) descent.
Guadalupe Diaz visited UC Davis as a 4-H member back in the 1960’s. At that time she didn’t know about UC Davis, but her 4-H experience was a driving force in her going to college, something that was almost unheard of in the Hispanic community where she grew up. She went on to study biology and physical sciences, likely as a result of her visit to UC Davis.
