The Dinesh Memorial STEM Scholarship
In Memory of Dinesh:
Dinesh Patel was an Alisa's Angels Supporter from the very beginning. He dedicated his time and talents to helping the foundation grow. In large part because of him, Alisa's Angels is where it is today: able to provide eight scholarships to young leaders who are themselves, dedicated to helping others and making their communities a better place.
Due to the love of Dinesh's family, one of the eight Alisa's Angels Scholarship recipients, with a focus in a STEM-related career field, will receive an additional $5,000, increasing their total scholarship amount to $10,000.
"We feel that the donations that we give go towards individuals and students who have this drive and ambition to further not only themselves but the entire community"
