Archbishop Oscar A. Romero Scholarship Recipients

1993-2017

 

 A committee of students, faculty and administrators was formed at Boston College to award a scholarship in memory of the martyred Archbishop. The scholarship recognizes a Boston College junior who best represents the values and ideals inherent in the life of Oscar Romero. Devotion to learning as evidence by the student's academic record here, and dedication to community service, both on and off campus, are the primary factors in determining the scholarship award. The student's financial need is also a consideration.

"The way I felt when I heard my name called was the most exhilarating moment I have felt in a long time... My mom jumped up shouting and I also followed... I embraced her, and headed up to the stage to give my speech. At the podium I had what I felt was like a flash movie of all the standout memories in my life. I thought about my childhood, my baseball career, my old teachers, pets and important birthday parties. It was a new feeling and I am proud to leave a legacy at Boston College, etching a Hispanic last name in BC's history."
