McEntee Scholarship Program Emergency FundAs you know, COVID 19 has taken a significant academic, financial and emotional and mental health toll on all students. Thanks to increased donations, we were able to reinstate the McEntee Scholarship Program Emergency Fund this year and offer small grant awards to a number of students at this time. So far nearly $5,000 has been raised and earmarked for students who are facing potential eviction or are unable to pay for a car repair or meet the tuition expenses for their final year at SJSU. If you can give more or haven’t given yet, a donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated. All contributions are 100% tax deductible and our tax ID number is 77-0048389 .
