Adrian Joseph Romo Memorial Scholarship

This Scholarship was established in 2020 to honor the life of Adrian Romo. 

Adrian graduated with honors from Humboldt State University in 2018, completing a degree in Kinesiology with emphasis in Pre-Physical Therapy and minors in Psychology and Native American Studies. Adrian was active in numerous clubs and activities across campus, acted as an Activities Student Assistant and even served as a mentor. However, it was his involvement in ITEPP that provided him with a home away from home and created important lifetime relationships. His family hopes to extend Adrian’s deep, life-long desire to help others and support his community through this scholarship, thereby assisting students in successfully completing their degree while they actively participate in ITEPP.


  • A current Cal Poly Humboldt undergraduate or graduate student, who will be attending the coming year as well.
  • Must be a Native Indigenous student enrolled in ITEPP/ Native American Center for Academic Excellence for a minimum of one year
  • Must display qualities of leadership and significant involvement with building and supporting the ITEPP student community
  • Demonstrate financial need

Students chosen for support will receive at least $500 in financial support.
