"Being able to assist our students to reach their educational goals by off-setting the cost of higher education is a top priority for San Diego Miramar College," said Dr. Patricia Hsieh, president of San Diego Miramar College.
The Miramar College Foundation, a California nonprofit public benefit corporation, was officially created on August 21, 1994 and is committed to supporting the diverse population of Miramar College students by raising scholarship funds.
"We cannot continue to provide this type of support and impact as many lives without the contributions made by our community partners and our employees," said Hsieh. "Under the leadership of the Miramar College Foundation, our students benefit greatly from the generosity we receive on an annual basis from local businesses and by the faculty and employees of both the college and the San Diego Community College District. We are grateful for their continued support."
This event is organized by the College’s Financial Aid and Scholarship Office.
