About a month ago, we launched a fundraising campaign to honor Arthur Arzola’s passion for promoting college access to first-generation and low-income students. We set an initial goal of $500 to provide a need-based book scholarship to an incoming first-generation Humboldt student.
We ended up raising $1,025.
We’ve been in touch with the IA team at Humboldt about the best approach to offer this scholarship and will keep you updated.
While we initially intended on closing the donation option on May 16th, we have since decided to keep it open until we receive direction on the path forward from HSU. This will likely occur in the next day or so. If you would like to contribute before we officially close donations, feel free to click the button below.
Thanks to everyone who participated and we’ll have an update for you as soon as we hear back.
#EMchat and the higher education community have once again blown us away with the level of generosity and passion for creating opportunities for all students, regardless of their background.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
