Ben Becker Memorial AutoTech Scholarship

This campaign ends on December 31 at 03:00AM EST

This scholarship is lovingly created by family, friends, faculty and students in honor of Ben Becker.  Ben attended De Anza from 2005-2007 majoring in Automotive Technology and

earned several certificates in automotive technology and machining.  Ben also earned several merit-based scholarships throughout his time at De Anza College. After graduating from De Anza, Ben began his career with the City of San Jose in 2007 where he worked as a mechanic for several years before moving to the San Jose Regional Waste Water Facility where he was quickly promoted to senior mechanic because of his knowledge, strong work-ethic, and leadership among his peers. Tragically, Ben lost his life on December 2019 and is deeply missed by his friends and family. By establishing this scholarship, Ben's strong work-ethic, leadership and passion for being a mechanic will be a legacy and inspiration to other young mechanics following in Ben's footsteps.

Much like Ben's experience, De Anza's Auto Technology's mission is to inspire, excite and prepare students to achieve a valuable place in our local and global community. We serve a diverse student population – including career-oriented students, lifelong learners and those who choose our program to enrich their own knowledge base.

Our focus is on integrity, personal achievement, service to our community and excellence in all we do. Ben's scholarship will award deserving students with scholarships which provide much needed financial support and perhaps even more importantly, the recognition that others believe that they can reach their goals.

Please consider supporting the Ben Becker Memorial Auto Tech Scholarship and help prepare a new generation of automotive technicians at De Anza College.
