Supreme Scholars Foundation Scholarship

In Memory of Ricky Supreme

Ricardo De LaraThe Supreme Scholars Foundation is honoring the memory of Ricardo “Ricky Supreme” de Lara who was an integral part of our team and who we tragically lost to gun violence in 2020. We’re excited to continue to help students and our list of Supreme Scholars continues to grow!

Ricky was committed to his family, work, and music and to honor him, the Supreme Scholars Foundation is offering TWO $1,500.00 scholarships to deserving high school or college graduates who are moving on in their studies into college, graduate school, or vocational school.

We are also partnering this year with Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Miami to prepare a high school senior for college by granting them a full 2 year scholarship to a Florida school with a Florida Prepaid College Plan.

We are seeking students that will be Supreme Scholars, that show a commitment and dedication to building a better future for themselves and their community.
