Joshua Gomes Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Joshua Gomes Memorial Scholarship Fund aims to lay a path for hope for young adults with HIV/AIDS by providing academic scholarships to universities of their choice. Each $1,000 scholarship we award will give the recipient a strong message: You are worth investing in.


Josh Gomes was a man with a plan. He had drive. He had passion. He had hope for the future. Josh also had hemophilia and AIDS. When the immune disease took his life at age 21, Josh was working toward a double degree in pre-medicine and pre-law at the University of Denver. The fact that Josh was continuing his education didn't surprise those who knew him well, but it may have surprised the physicians who gave him little hope of surviving childhood.

The Joshua Gomes Memorial Scholarship Fund aims to lay a path for hope for young adults like Josh-those with HIV/AIDS-by providing academic scholarships to universities of their choice. We hope to allow Josh's love for learning and community service to continue through other young adults who also exhibit these qualities.
