John and Stella Dumitriu immigrated to the Bay Area from Romania where they found success in life and created a generous scholarship to students. The Dumitriu family entrusted the Martins Foundation to administer the scholarships as our mission is closely aligned. The Dumitriu Scholarship will kick off with two scholarships to Chabot College students in 2022 and we will always keep an eye out for Romanian students in the future to assist through their studies.
