This week, San Diego Mesa College announced the 2019 scholarship winners for the 26th annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony, where approximately $170,000 in scholarships will be awarded to 175 students. This year the ceremony will be a Saturday luncheon hosted by the Mesa College Foundation, which will take place at noon on Saturday, April 20 at the Doubletree Hotel in Mission Valley.

”Our generous donors – consisting of faculty, staff, alumni, community partners and even students themselves – continue to come forward to support the success of our students,” stated Mesa College president Pamela Luster.

At the ceremony on Saturday, Mesa College will be awarding 96 scholarships to 175 students – 76 of whom are receiving more than one award. The ceremony begins with a “donor meet and greet” and no-host social hour, continues with the recognition of donors and recipients, and concludes with dancing and socializing.

This year, multiple sponsors have already signed up to assist with underwriting the event. Funding has been provided by donors such as the Mesa College Associated Students and Kaiser at the Olympian Gold level, California Coast Credit Union at the Olympian Bronze level, and Elizabeth Armstrong, Chancellor Constance Carroll and Dr. Pamela Luster at the Olympian Torch Bearer level. Individuals or organizations interested in sponsoring the event can contact the Mesa College Office of Resource Development or at 619-388-2285.

Tickets to the Scholarship Awards Ceremony must be purchased in advance and the event is expected to sell out (no tickets will be sold at the door). Visit the Scholarship Awards Ceremony webpage for more information and to see the list of award winners.
