Dollars for Scholars!

Dollars for Scholars!

On October 15, 2009, the University of San Diego hosted the 2009 San Diego County Scholarship Showcase to recognize community sponsors and donors that raised scholarship funds to support local, college-bound students through various Dollars for Scholars organizations. The Ross Family Foundation was recognized at this event for its generous support of the Friends of Cal-SOAP Dollars for Scholars chapter. This chapter supports “Cal-SOAP” (California Student Opportunity and Access Program) students that are first-generation, college-bound students with demonstrated financial need. Students supported by this chapter have gone on to attend institutions such as: UC Santa Barbara, UC Santa Cruz, UC San Diego, San Diego State University, and University of Virginia. The Friends of Cal-SOAP Dollars for Scholars organization accepts tax-deductable donations on a year-round basis. For more information, or to make a contribution, please contact Chapter President, Janet Abbott at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
