While at BCC she worked as an ASAP peer mentor and a Math tutor, received the Outstanding Student of the Year from the Association of Latino Faculty and Staff, was a scholar for the Kaplan Education Foundation and a member of the community college honor society Phi Theta Kappa, among others.

More than 1,700 community college students applied for this prestigious scholarship and 60 high-achieving college students received it.

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation established this scholarship to relieve the financial burden of tuition at a four-year institution and enable students to focus on their studies.

Rubi said, “This scholarship is important to me, my family and the campus community. It will enable me to excel in Mathematics, a primarily male-dominated field.
