The 49er Textbook Scholarship Program is a partnership among the Center for Scholarship Information, the Division of Student Services and 49er Shops, Inc. The goal of the 49er Textbook Scholarship Program is to raise $149,000 to create an endowed scholarship whereby a minimum of 30 scholarships may be awarded to deserving CSULB students each year. These scholarships will increase student access to textbooks so these students may focus on their academic endeavors. More than $52,000 has already been raised towards a goal of $149,000. Due to early support of the program, 10 scholarships were offered to students this semester.
The next phase of the fundraising efforts, the Piggybank Placard Fundraiser, begins Monday, May 5. CSULB community members are invited to participate by contributing $1 or more at any 49er Shop’s location and write their name on a piggybank placard which will be displayed showing your support. All proceeds support 49er Textbook Scholarships. This fundraiser will continue through Saturday, May 24.
