Cal Poly Pomona recognizes outstanding student achievement through the President’s Council Scholars program. Considered the most prestigious scholarship series at the university, President's Council Scholarships have been awarded to 20 undergraduate and four graduate students, who represent each of the academic colleges.
Founded in 1983, the program awards a select group of students each year based on academic and co-curricular excellence rather than need. Recipients must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and demonstrate significant contributions to the community during their university years. Each of the endowed scholarships is named by its benefactor and provides a $2,500 award for the recipient.
The President’s Council is a group of business and community leaders who excel in their professional fields and demonstrate a record of public service. For the past 23 years, the council has played an active role in improving educational, cultural and social life at the university. The council serves as the major support group for the president and brings university concerns to the attention of civic, government, and business leaders throughout the region and the state.
