OUR SCHOLARS

Who are they?

Our scholarship recipients are CSUMB students who are graduates of local high schools and have at least a five year connection to the area. Each must be among the first generation in their family to have attended college. Each must also be a legal resident of the United States and nominated by a school counselor or other adult who knows the student well.


The students nominated and selected to apply for a scholarship are screened and interviewed by a selection committee comprised of program mentors. Each year that committee selects a cohort of new recipients based upon the funds available for new scholarships.

The Pay It Forward Scholarship has definitely been a huge blessing to my family and I. I am forever thankful for the immense hospitality and support that this group of people meet me with every step of the way.

This program has been one of my biggest blessings. The financial aspect of the program has helped ensure I had school supplies and books for all my courses with no worry. More importantly, this program has created so many great connections for me and I can never truly express how thankful I am by the gratitude and sincerity shown to me by the people of this program.
