"I wanted to give thanks to the GI Forum of Santa Maria, Mr. and Mrs. Galvan. I am currently finishing my last semester at CSULA and will begin my Masters in Teaching and Credential in History. With the scholarship money I received, I was able to cover housing expenses and purchase books for the semester. Thank you again.”
Lizbeth Piñon Sosa
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."

"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 plan to graduate this upcoming spring 2019. After completing my undergrad, I will obtain my Master in Teaching along with my credential in ELD."
