At the annual dinner in May, your Association awards scholarships to graduate students attending Northern California universities. (See the awardees). It has been our objective to increase the amount periodically, given the increasing costs of graduate education. Thanks to your help we have been able to accomplish this goal. A brief discussion of their outstanding research is linked to many names.
The need for additional support of graduate students continues to increase. One need only look at the cost of rental housing in Berkeley and Palo Alto to appreciate this. In addition, many university and other financial aid programs have been cut back or run out as a doctoral candidate approaches the end of his or her program. That, of course, is the point at which, for many, the need becomes greatest. We estimate that our current award amounts to roughly 20% of the cost of one year of graduate education in this area. Take a look at a few of the many replies we receive from past recipients here.
This is where you, as members of this Association, have been of so much help. We thank you sincerely for your past support and must ask for even more this year to bring this program to its full potential.
