Coca Cola Scholarship Recipients
Political Science major
My name is Brandon Bettencourt and I am currently a political science major at Santa Clara University. I am the son of two extremely hardworking Portuguese immigrants and will be the first in my family to graduate from college. Having lived in San Jose for my entire life, I am passionate about helping my city and community, or even the larger Bay Area. In the future I hope to help these communities through local government work such as working with the San Jose City Council. This scholarship award will be a significant help for my family and I as the cost of attending SCU has been, and will continue for some time, to be a significant burden which which this would certainly help to alleviate.
