Dr. Ernesto Galarza Scholarship

XXX Annual Dr. Ernesto Galarza Scholarship for 2015-16 

The Dr. Ernesto Galarza Scholarship application will be available in January 2015.  Watch this space. We are finalizing an additional funding source prior to making it available.  Sponsored by the Chicano/Latino Faculty and Staff Association (CLFSA) of San José State University, the annual scholarship was established to honor Dr. Galarza's commitment to the Chicano/Latino community.  CLFSA provides scholarship awards, in collaboration with community organization and agencies, to assist students in their pursuit of higher education at San José State University.  Scholarships honor Dr. Galarza by addressing a barrier students face in their pursuit of higher education.  The Dr. Ernesto Galarza Institute, a community-based organization, provides scholarships to incoming Fall 2015 transfer students from San José Community College (SJCC) and Evergreen Valley College (EVC).

Graduate, continuing SJSU undergraduate students, as well as Fall 2015 incoming transfer students from SJSU and EVC are invited to apply.  Awards will be presented at the Dr. Ernesto Galarza Symposium and Welcome Reception, a celebration held at the beginning of the 2015-16 academic year.  The event is held at the Cultural Heritage Center at MLK Library at SJSU. Scholarship recipients will be formally recognized and all members of the campus and the larger community are invited to attend.
