LGBT and HIV Scholarship
The Matthew Staley & Wendy Hussey Scholarship for Outstanding Achievement in Promoting LGBT Equality and/or HIV Prevention
Thanks to a generous gift from Matthew Staley, an MPH alumnus of the SJSU MPH Program, a $1000 scholarship award has been established to honor an MPH student who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in promoting LGBT Equality and/or HIV Prevention. Matthew Staley, a SJSU MPH Class of 2000 Graduate, dedicated many years of his personal and professional life to HIV Prevention at the local, state, and national level before being forced into early retirement due to complications from the disease he worked with others to prevent. Wendy Hussey, a SJSU MPH Class of 2001 Graduate, was instrumental in helping to establish the now annual Diversity Event on the SJSU campus, one of many lifelong achievements in promoting LGBT equality.
Application and supporting documents are due at the time of application for admission into the MPH program. Awards will be announced at the time of acceptance of the MPH program online and campus cohorts.
