“This money is giving me the ability to put the majority of my focus on my studies. I feel as though it’s giving me a real chance to succeed. Thank you.” – Kendra, Graduated Scholarship Recipient

“Because of the generosity of the Foundation, I was able to focus 100% of my efforts on my studies – which included a marine ecology field quarter in South Africa, undergraduate research within a lab, and a fields methods course that got me out with elephant seals! I was able to pursue these opportunities without having to worry about working, which was an incredible relief! Throughout my time at MPC, I was working full time, and I was able to trade that for studying full time, thanks to the Foundation.” – Victoria, Graduated Scholarship Recipient.

“I want you to know that on June 11th I will be wearing a stole with your names on it. I will be walking and feeling very proud and eternally thankful for your support in helping me attend the University of California, Santa Cruz and attaining my first bachelor’s degree. You have made this dream a reality.” – Maria, Graduated Scholarship Recipient

“Being awarded the Peggy and Jack Baskin Scholarship will allow me to continue my growth as both a learner and a teacher, and will give me the experience I need to support my dream… I am certain that this scholarship will make a significant contribution to my continuing education and I will follow the foundation’s example and give back to others in the community.” – Wen, Graduated Scholarship Recipient
