The Brigida Guzman Lizama Scholarship is named in honor of one of the Guam Society of America’s matriarchs, Brigida Guzman Lizama who passed away in 2010. Auntie ‘Bea’ was an active member of the Guam Society along with her husband Uncle Bob (Robert LG Lizama). The scholarship program was near and dear to her heart and the Society is very proud to have this category named in her honor. This scholarship requires 24 volunteer hours provided directly to the Guam Society of America. Additional details are provided in the packet for applicants to fulfill their volunteer hour requirements for the scholarship.
