Your generous support for programs in the Division of Student Affairs benefit every student whom we serve. Your gift will provide funds which directly benefit programs in the area of your choice. These funds provide student scholarships, emergency funds and general program support.
Veterans Success Center – The Veterans Success Center provides multi-faceted assistance to prospective and enrolled student veterans and dependents. The center aids students in accessing their VA Education benefits, the timely certifying of those benefits, and completing the admission application process. The center also helps students in accessing campus and veteran-related resources and provides leadership opportunities and peer-to-peer mentorship.
Emergency Funds – The Emergency Fund aids students with unforeseen expenses that occur during the academic year. The Emergency Fund acts as a surrogate parent, supporting ancillary costs that can arise. In past semesters, the Fund has helped students with urgent dental work, transportation, books, food, and other miscellaneous expenses.
Guardian Scholars – Many foster youth in the Sacramento area “age out” of the foster care system each year and are highly vulnerable to physical victimization, homelessness, and extreme poverty; few of them are able to gain access to education beyond high school. In response to these needs, the Guardian Scholars Program was created in order to improve access to essential information and supportive services for those former foster youth who enroll on our campus.
Dreamers Resource Center – The Dreamers Resource Center provides support to undocumented high school, transfer, and graduate students as well as to students with mixed-status families. The Center does so by providing a number of services, including internships, legal support and services, workshops and support groups.
Project Rebound – Project Rebound is a program created to help formerly incarcerated students prepare, apply, enroll and graduate with an impactful degree from Sacramento State. The program offers academic and financial counseling and referral, peer mentoring and tutoring, and career development.
