"As a Fiat Lux scholar at UC Berkeley, I have met so many amazing people and have taken classes around environmental justice and science, all of which have inspired me and led to experiences like harvesting at Gill Tract Farm, Climate Strikes, building bamboo houses in Ecuador, and so many other projects. I can really focus in on creating the education and career path I want with this support."

"As a first-generation college student from a very low-income background, I chose to accept the UC Berkeley scholarship because I knew that nowhere else would offer me the support that this scholarship has offered me here.
When I received this award, I felt immensely grateful. My mom and I teared up together as we hugged tightly because receiving this scholarship meant that I would have the opportunities that she as an immigrant never had."
