2019 SJAA Scholarship Recipients

Submitted by Scholarship Chairpersons 
Kathy (Pendergast) Sasabuchi ’73 & Val (Eller) Baxter ‘60

The SJAA awarded seventeen scholarships that totaled the largest amount ever of $42,500. The scholarship amounts vary from $2,000 to $5,000. Ten of these scholarships, totaling $30,500, were donated by individual alumni, former faculty members, family member names and class names. Other scholarships are general donations from alumni, faculty or friends. These funds are donated to assist the higher education of deserving students in the quest of their career dreams. Each scholarship is given to the student after the verification of his or her enrollment in the 1st semester of college. The students have up to three years in which to claim their scholarship. Each year there are more deserving applicants than the number of scholarships the SJAA has available to award. We invite your consideration in donating to the scholarship program to assist more students with higher education goals.

The San Juan Alumni Association is now proud to announce the 2019 scholarship recipients.
The association congratulates you and encourages you to study well to achieve your goals!
