Juan Carlos Mora ’15: The first-ever recipient of the BULAC Endowed Scholarship

Posted on: Sep 11th, 2013

Juan Carlos Mora, a Mexican American freshman from Pomona, CA is doing very well at Brown and has already taken on a leadership role as the freshman representative to M.E.Ch.A and is a vocalist for Mariachi de Brown, Brown’s official mariachi band. He is also involved in the Interpreters Aid Program at Rhode Island Hospital where he volunteers his time assisting doctors and patients with English/Spanish translations. Juan Carlos has an interest in attending Medical School in the future.

Juan Carlos shared that if it weren’t for the BULAC Endowed Scholarship, he would not have been able to afford to attend Brown. We would like to express our gratitude to the generous community of alumni that came together to make this scholarship available to Juan Carlos. We should be very proud of our community and continue our generosity and support into the future so that Juan Carlos and many other Latino and Hispanic students can have the same opportunities.
