Live Like Diana Scholarship

Diana Alduncin was a biomedical engineering student at Florida International University who was highly dedicated to her studies, community service, and being engaged on campus through multiple organizations. She was a daughter and a sister who lived her life dedicated to challenging the unknown. Diana was adventurous, determined, and authentic among other countless attributes. Most importantly, Diana was a young girl who did not let her fears keep her from reaching her highest potential.

Diana’s spirit and aspirations can be clearly identified in this quote from her personal statement for her study abroad trip, “This program along with the experience will change my life for the better. I believe growth always comes from challenging situations; this is the opportunity of a lifetime. I wish after I complete the program, I find comfort in discomfort and I continue exploring and merging my two passions, science and love for humanity.”

The Live Like Diana Scholarship was created to honor her legacy and celebrate the campus organizations that she was involved in such as: LEAD Team, Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority, and Study Abroad. For additional information on Diana, please visit:
