Scholarship Recipient Graduations

We are committed to support and track all scholarship recipients until they graduate from a four year college or university. Most of our scholarship recipients are the first in their family to attend college and staying the course can be difficult; we are proud of these students and their determination to succeed. As of June 2017, 75% of awardees (with sufficient time enrolled to graduate) have graduated from a four year school. At SJSU, the average time taken to graduate is six years, while most McEntee scholarship students have averaged five years to graduate.
