San Jose State University
Major: Justice Studies
"It has been a pleasure to be a recipient of the GI Forum Scholarship. This scholarship has helped me greatly in furthering my education and transferring to San Jose State. I was able to pay for my books as well as rent. Without this opportunity I would not have been able to afford my textbooks nor be able to pursue my goal. I will soon finish my first year at San Jose State as a Justice studies major with an emphasis in criminology. I look forward to continuing my education and being closer to reaching my goal of becoming a Crime Scene Investigator. I truly appreciate the opportunity I was given due to the generosity of the donors."

Major: Linguistics and Spanish
Minor: Teaching English as a Second Language
"I would like to thank the GI Forum for supporting me in my education. This scholarship facilitated my move from Santa Maria to Fullerton. I would like to especially thank Helen and Willie Glavan for their support. I am currently completing my 3rd semester at CSUF, and I plan to graduate spring of 2019. After completing my undergrad, I plan to enroll in a single subject teaching credential program and hopefully come back to teach at Santa Maria High School."
