The recipients of Cal Poly Pomona?s prestigious President?s Council Scholarships will receive their awards from university President J. Michael Ortiz on Wednesday, Oct. 1.
All of the recipients hail from Southern California and represent each of the academic colleges of Agriculture; Business Administration; Education & Integrative Studies; Environmental Design; Letters, Arts & Social Sciences; Science; and The Collins School of Hospitality Management.
Of the 23 President?s Council Scholars, 19 are undergraduates and four are graduate students.
Founded in 1983, the President's Council Scholars program awards a select group of students each year based on academic and co-curricular excellence rather than need.
Recipients must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and demonstrate significant contributions to the community during their high school and university years. Each of the endowed scholarships is named by its benefactor and provides a $1,500 award for the recipient.
The President?s Council is a group of prominent business and community leaders who have a dedicated history of public service and serve as liaisons to the university.
