SAN YSIDRO RISING SCHOLAR AWARD
In 2021 San Ysidro High School alumna, Julissa Muñiz, with the support of over 160 donors and former classmates, established the San Ysidro Rising Scholar Award, a scholarship dedicated to supporting first-generation, college-bound students of color from San Ysidro High School. In its inaugural year, they raised over $10,000, and three scholarships in the amount of $2,000 each were awarded. The remaining $4,000 was used to begin a scholarship fund to award an additional two scholarships in 2022. In addition to the financial support, students were paired with an SYHS alumni mentor and an institutional mentor who can help guide their journey to and through college.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CONTINUES TO SUPPORT OUR
SAN YSIDRO RISING SCHOLARS!
