$100 scholarship

Ramiro Frausto, Senior Director of the Institute of College Initiatives at the University of San Diego, sent the following statement about their awardee:

[Our selected student] is an exceptional McNair Scholar who stands out amongst her high-achieving peers. She has a demonstrated history of going above and beyond in her pursuit of research and in her PhD application process. She will be applying to multiple PhD programs that are offered through CSU institutions. Unfortunately, the CSU system has stopped providing fee waivers. As a result, she informed me that she will only be applying to 1 of the 2 programs that are a good fit for her. We are not allowed to use McNair grant funds on graduate applications, thus, this scholarship will allow her to apply to both programs.
