After their completion and if accepted; students are given the opportunity to attend USC on a full financial package award.

Attorney Dominguez believes not only in giving back to the community, but also in reaching out to students who have the enthusiasm and desire to attend a college or university.
This year he proudly granted two individual scholarships to Marlytt Garrido, a young lady with a passion to make a difference in her community. She is interested in pursuing her career in political science. Elizabeth Guzman is another young lady who received a Juan Dominguez scholarship. Mrs. Guzman is an intelligent and bright student whose promising future college plan is to obtain a double major in journalism and the social sciences.
Attorney Juan J. Dominguez continues to support the USC NAI throughout the years and encourages others to support these young students to achieve their educational goals.
Mr. Dominguez believes it takes a passionate soul to achieve a goal, but also a great crowd of believers including passionate teachers, parents, and friends to encourage a student’s path to success.
