Salt Lake City,


This scholarship means more than the ‘dedication, efforts, or the hardships’, it means an honor to me. When I crossed paths with the Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation, it was an actual miracle. All my life I have been an enthusiast, mastering many talents and uncovering life’s secrets to help others and innovate. However, some things in school created barriers. As children we are taught to ‘get with the program,’ but then how do we train and create innovators (who are not entirely ‘with the program’)?  It means an honor for conscientiousness and my gratitude goes to the Morelli Foundation for supporting me all these years. They have supported me with great power and I am proud to say I am achieving my dreams as a Mechanical Engineer. The purpose for me now is to give back and make them proud of their contribution to society.

We Need Your Support on November 3, 2023

To date we have awarded over 330 scholarships, totaling more than $550,000. Your gift is helping these young adults receive much needed tutoring, testing, accommodations, resources and tuition support, which can make the difference between success and failure. But more than the financial support, your generous support builds students’ self-esteem and confidence, as well as restores the dream of being worthy and deserving of an education.

We would like to thank Promontory Foundation for their generous matching grant donation!  Please help us reach our goal of $40,000 so that we may continue to change lives!
