Opening Doors for Young Latino Scholars

“Helping a student to obtain a higher education is one of the greatest gifts a person can give.”

- Chancellor Khosla

Last night, at the 17th annual Fiesta de las Estrellas celebration, several star scholarship recipients were recognized at a reception at the Faculty Club.  The event was created by the Hispanic Scholarship Council, which has raised more than $1 million for UC San Diego undergraduate scholarships.  The Council’s mission is to provide access to education and create opportunities for promising Latino students.  Chancellor Khosla attended the reception and told the students, “We are proud of your talent and achievements, and we are so glad you are here at UC San Diego.”
