Support That Makes a Difference
Gratitude is often mentioned when scholars are asked about their experiences at Cal State Fullerton.
Scholars share a keen awareness of how much they have received from this unique scholarship program.
It’s this sense of gratitude that leaves a lasting impression on many donors. Once they meet the students and gain a full appreciation of the impact of the President’s Scholars Program, it becomes clear just how meaningful their support can be.
The majority of Cal State Fullerton students work at least part-time, and some even more, to support their studies. The scholarship’s generous financial benefits alleviate the necessity for many students to work while going to school and opens the door to opportunities that may not have been possible otherwise. This support allows President’s Scholars to immerse themselves in research, professional internships, service projects and other experiences that provide outstanding preparation for graduate school or beginning a chosen career. Often these experiences give scholars a necessary edge for their next step beyond college.
The generosity of the program’s donors makes the scholarship a reality, but donors also have a tremendous impact on shaping a President’s Scholars experience on campus. Donors serve as role models, provide encouragement and support, and often promote valuable networking opportunities for scholars.
