Meet the 2013 Grotto scholar


ScholarMatch student Nicolas Soto writes so much and so often, he often has to use the margins of pages to fit it all his thoughts in. The San Francisco Writers’ Grotto provides working writers a collaborative and inspiring place, while Writer’s Grotto Classes provide aspiring writers with a place to learn their craft. So when the Grotto community and their students generously offered to bring their network together and rally support for Nicolas’s scholarship, it made for the perfect definition of a scholar match.

Nicolas is the 2013 Grotto Scholar. Money raised will go toward meeting his tuition goal at college. A soon-to-be graduate of San Francisco’s Leadership High, he’s not sure where he’ll go yet, but his choices include San Francisco State, UC Santa Cruz, UC Merced, and Whittier College.

We’re tremendously excited to be offering this scholarship with the Grotto. If your business, family, sports team, alumni association, or even book club is interested in joining us in supporting an under-resourced but determined student like Nicolas, contact us to learn more about our Sponsored Scholarship program!
