Established in 2010 and to be awarded in perpetuity, the Zachary Cruz Memorial Scholarship at UC Berkeley was created by Zachary's parents, Jodie and Frank Cruz (Class of '05, MA '09, PhD in progress). The purpose of the scholarship is to preserve Zachary's memory, to reward excellence in public education, and to support University's commitment to access, equity, and inclusion at Berkeley. Frank and Jodie Cruz also conceive of the scholarship as a way to give back to the communities of Ventura County and the Bay Area, where they raised their son.
