Donate - Be All The Things Scholarship
Background of Award
This scholarship was established by Quyen Luu Hom, a female small business owner and former non-traditional student. Quyen is a first-generation Vietnamese American daughter born to parents who came to the United States in 1975 as refugees from the Vietnam War. This scholarship was created in memoriam of her mother, Thuy Luu, who passed away in 2019. Upon arrival in the United States, Thuy simultaneously attended college and learned English, completing her bachelor’s degree in 5 years. She was every bit the definition of a non-traditional
student and lived her life by example, giving back to her community and paying it forward in many aspects of her life. The “Be All The Things” Scholarship is meant to honor Thuy’s legacy.
