About the Diomande Memorial Scholarship
Established in 2017 in memory of a former Unaccompanied Refugee Minor (URM) client who was truly committed to his education, but unfortunately passed away due to illness before he was able to achieve his goals of graduating high school and pursuing further education.
In this client’s memory, annual scholarships are awarded to youth in the URM Program in support of their educational dreams and pursuits. Applicants must be a current URM client with a concrete plan to pursue further education or training after high school, either at a college or vocational training program. Applicants must also demonstrate strong academic potential, commitment to achieving their education goals, and a financial need related to the cost of attending their educational program of choice.
