“I wouldn’t have been able to afford school if it weren’t for scholarships and aid.”
Back in San Diego, when OuYang, ’13 Management Information Systems, read the description of the MIS major, he thought: “It’s like it’s written for me.” But to pack up his belongings and head for SJSU, he needed financial help. That help came in the form of the Danny Fortune Memorial Business Scholarship, the Friends of Jack Holland Business Scholarship, and the Alumni Association Dean’s Scholarship for the Lucas College and Graduate School of Business. Equally important? The support and impact of mentors. As a Gary J. Sbona Honors Program mentor, OuYang payed it forward.
