MassBay Foundation Scholarship Awards and Donor Appreciation

Students are the heart and soul of MassBay Community College. We marvel at their resiliency, determination and talent as they overcome barriers to reach their educational goals. Especially this year, we are amazed by all they have achieved.

In April 2021 we gathered virtually to celebrate our inspirational MassBay scholarship recipients and the generous donors who make the MassBay Foundation Scholarship program possible. Highlighting this events were two candid conversations with students, moderated by MassBay alumna Stacy Okada, which offered a unique and authentic look at the MassBay experience.

During our spring celebration we viewed edited versions of the conversations, due to time constraints. Below are links to the full-length discussions.

We thank Stacy Okada and the students who shared their stories: Manuel Fandino, Anthony Neptune, Ana Carolina Riccaldoni, Dinora Torres and Alexis Wright.

The MassBay Community College Foundation awards many scholarships tailored to meet the needs of our community. If you’d like to learn more about the scholarship program, or the other ways the foundation supports student success, please email
