The Nicholas Q. Pedrotti Memorial Endowed Scholarship is a tribute to both UIW and this fine young man. It was established by his family, to honor his memory and the importance of the Second Chance UIW gave him.
Due to a medical condition, Nicholas’s academic career was unsuccessful at a very large, public university. Recognizing his true potential as a student and as a young man of character and integrity, UIW was able to see beyond his academic credentials and offer him a second chance to pursue his dream. In exchange, the UIW Community and his family got to see him flourish and succeed. His family is grateful for the opportunity Nicholas had at UIW and they want to help support this Second Chance, in perpetuity. Their generous contribution and their commitment to this idea of a Second Chance is formalized in an agreement with UIW. The Recipient of this financial assistance will be a transfer student that demonstrates that he/she deserves and needs a Second Chance.
Though he was called home by his Lord and Savior in 2022, Nicholas Pedrotti was a beloved member of our UIW Community and this Endowment honors his legacy as a Second Chance Success Story. Help us grow this opportunity so more and more young people can get the opportunity they deserve and need.
