Student Scholarship Fundraiser
Join the Association of Latino Faculty, Staff, and Students (ALFSS) as we build a brighter future for students at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB). Support the ALFSS scholarship fund today!
The ALFSS scholarship fund was created to help CSUSB students continue to further their educational journey. Since 1985, ALFSS has awarded more than $300,000 in scholarships to new and continuing CSUSB graduate and undergraduate students--this includes incoming high school seniors and community college transfer students. The ALFSS Scholarship provides students with the financial support needed as they continue to define the future at CSUSB.
Make a Difference Today
With over 20,000 students enrolled at CSUSB, we serve a student population that is 81% first-generation college students and 77% of total students who receive grants and scholarships. Over 13,000 LatinX students make up CSUSB’s student body and campus funds are not available to meet the needs of all our students. Oftentimes, students are faced with a somber reality of paying for tuition or supporting their families—this can deter students from continuing on to earn their baccalaureate degrees. According to The Education Trust, degree attainment for young LatinX adults is only 24.5%--7.4% percent earning an Associate's degree, 12.9% earning a Bachelor’s degree, and 4.2% earning a Graduate degree. Together, with the help of donors like you, we can make a difference and help reduce the gap by increasing the opportunity for students seeking degree attainment. Contribute today as we continue to transform the lives of our #Coyote4Life students. Your generosity will help pave the way for student’s future success not only in our local but national and global regions as they Define the Future.
