SJND Scholar Receives Full Ride to College

McDaniel College awarded Sergio Martin of Oakland a full-tuition Dorsey Scholarship. Martin is a senior at Alameda’s Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School.  

Students selected for the Dorsey Scholars Program, the highest academic honor at McDaniel, receive full tuition, room and board for all four years at McDaniel College (a value of more than $200,000).  

Martin is a soccer student-athlete, a member of the creative writing club and a student ambassador at his high school. He has also volunteered with St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and interned with Charity First through Achieve.   

Dorsey Scholars are academic leaders and role models on campus at McDaniel. They also have distinctive opportunities, including serving as ambassadors of the College. Students do not apply for the award but are chosen from the Honors applicant pool. Martin is one of five incoming freshmen for the Class of 2024 awarded a Dorsey Scholarship. 

The Dorsey Scholars Program is supported by a $6.7 million estate gift from 1891 alumnus Philip Henry Dorsey, the largest bequest for scholarships in McDaniel’s history.
