Now Hiring for the SJSU College Corps!

Sent: April 26, 2024

From: Vincent J. Del Casino, Jr., Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs

Dear SJSU Community,

I am pleased to announce the application for SJSU’s #CaliforniansForAll College Corps is open. The College Corps is a historic state level investment in service that reduces college debt for students who serve the community for an academic year. SJSU undergraduate students who are enrolled full time during the 2024-25 academic year and complete 450 hours of service through the College Corps will receive up to $10,000 to help pay for college. 

In a San Francisco Chronicle article that featured current SJSU Fellows, Governor Gavin Newsom said “This little-known program makes him ‘more proud ... than anything’ else he’s done.” The SJSU College Corps is a statewide leader in Fellow engagement and program completion. Fellows stated:

“I really like regularly serving. School can be pretty stressful sometimes. I've noticed that showing up to Cyber Spartans or doing my Second Harvest shift left me feeling refreshed and energized.”
“The best part has been the amount of skills and friendships that I have gained from this program, along with the amount of experience I am gaining as well.”
“I learned a lot about coding with the kids and have learned to appreciate computer science as something anyone can do.”
“I have learned to be more present, more nuanced, and more connected to those around me. I have learned to be a stronger leader, to be more resilient toward adversity, and to be so much more confident in my ability to make an impact on others.”

Eligible SJSU undergraduate students are encouraged to apply now to join this fun and creative team of students.  To learn more about the SJSU College Corps, go to: to learn more or apply, to register for the next information session on April 29 at 11am, or
the Smith Carlos lawn to chat with current members on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10am-12pm.
