This year’s recipients of the SJSU Annual Giving Spartan Pride Scholarship give thanks to SJSU Fund donors.
Funded by donations to the SJSU Fund, the SJSU Annual Giving Spartan Pride Scholarship provides assistance and funding to five incoming freshmen who exemplify the Spartan spirit. That is, students who are hard-working, creative, motivated, inclusive and collaborative. The scholarship is available to students from all majors who are enrolled in at least 12 units and have a high school cumulative GPA of 3.25 or above. It is not dependent on financial need.
As part of this four-year, renewable scholarship, recipients have one-on-one and cohort meetings with Nancy Stewart, the program director. They also become part of a community of 20 total Spartan Pride Scholars by attending workshops and events throughout their time at SJSU.
“This is much more than a regular scholarship. It’s an opportunity to be part of a program and a small community.” —Edgar Jimenez Granados
“Thanks to the award the donors have given to me, I am now one step closer to my dream of connecting people.”—Hanh Linh Nguyen
