The LoveMikeNia Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization created in memory of Michael Muchioki and Nia Haqq.
The purpose of this organization is to provide monetary scholarships to college students who possess similar characteristics and goals as Mike and Nia.
The organization also strives to create community service initiatives in which the scholarship recipients will participate in, while also providing a mentorship network. It is our hope that in the future, the foundation will expand it's focus and become a full service community resource.
Mike studied Computer Science at New Jersey Institute of Technology and Nia received a degree in Interactive Media from The College of New Jersey.
The LoveMikeNia Foundation will provide scholarships to a student from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) – Newark, NJ and The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) – Ewing, NJ each academic year, in honor of Michael Muchioki and Nia Haqq. (read more about their story here).
In support, AnythingURBAN would like to recognize the 2015 award recipients.
