We introduced our first Trustees’ Scholar to the San Juan College Board of Trustees. Giessi Caraveo is a 2022 graduate from Piedra Vista High School. He wowed the selection committee with his application, letters of recommendation, personal essay, outstanding GPA, and professionalism in his interview!

The Trustees’ Scholarship is San Juan College’s first full-ride scholarship and will cover the cost of room and board, tuition, books, and student fees. This scholarship was made possible through the San Juan College Foundation and the generosity of our donors.

The San Juan College Foundation currently has 167 endowed scholarship funds which have provided more than 250 scholarships in par of summer and fall semesters of 2021 and the 2022 spring semester. They also have 25 annual scholarship accounts.

The San Juan College Foundation was established in 1973 as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), tax exempt corporation to fill several critical needs at San Juan College and in the communities, it serves. The mission of the San Juan College Foundation is to provide private sector resources for the advancement and support of San Juan College.

Congratulations Giessi! We are so happy to have you at San Juan College!
