We encourage you to pay for your membership online (see Membership Area) on this site.

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 (Roberto 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 – students interested in applying for this category, may contact the Guam Society for ideas on earning these service hours. You do not have to be in the Washington, DC metro area to work these service hours – we can always use your help virtually or remotely. Contact us for tasks that can be done remotely and still earn hours for this category.
