COMMUNITY: Quakes Foundation to Award Second Annual Spartan East Side Promise Scholarship

SAN JOSE, Calif. – For the second year in a row the San Jose Earthquakes Foundation, in partnership with the Spartan East Side Promise (SESP), will be awarding a scholarship to one recipient who will be provided with a full year’s tuition and campus housing for their first year at San Jose State.

The Spartan East Side Promise is a collaboration between San José State University and East Side Union High School District with the goal of offering guaranteed admission to qualified students who attend high school in the East Side Union High School District. Through a variety of interactive programming, the SESP provides a pathway to admission at SJSU by clearly specifying the admission requirements and sharing information about resources for academic success with students and families in the district.

Chosen by the San Jose Earthquakes Foundation board, the scholarship will be awarded to one deserving student, admitted to SJSU through the Spartan East Side Promise, who has shown a commitment to education and community involvement.
