Dr. Ernesto Galarza Scholarship
XXIX Annual Dr. Ernesto Galarza Scholarship for 2014-15
Due Friday, April 4, 2014
The Dr. Ernesto Galarza Scholarship application is now 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 2014 transfer students from San José Community College (SJCC) and Evergreen Valley College (EVC).
Graduate, continuing SJSU undergraduate students, as well as Fall 2014 incoming transfer students from SJSU and EVC are invited to apply. Awards will be presented at the Dr. Ernesto Galarza Symposium, a celebration held on Thursday, May 15, 2014 from 6:00-7:30 pm 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.
