The Bulldog Pride Fund is an endowed scholarship that was established under the auspices of the Fresno State Alumni Association in 2006 with one simple mission: “To support students attending Fresno State.”

“We are pleased and proud to have surpassed a major milestone in our short history,” exclaimed Peter Robertson, three-time Fresno State graduate and founder. “Bulldog Pride Fund donors have been extremely generous in their continued support and it’s made all of the difference in achieving our long-lasting success.”

Today, the Bulldog Pride Fund endowment provides six annual scholarships of $2,000 each and will distribute a total of $12,000 this fall: 

• Bulldog Pride Fund – two annual awards of $2,000 each to students demonstrating academic achievement, financial need and volunteer service to the community; 
• ASI President’s Award – annual award of $2,000 to the student elected as President of the Associated Students, Inc.; 
• GSA Network Award – annual award of $2,000 to a student affiliated with the GSA Network;
• Harvey Milk Hope Award – annual award of $2,000 to a student enrolled in the Humanics Certificate Program; and 
• TimeOut Spirit Award – annual award of $2,000 to the student that performs as Fresno State’s mascot.

Applications for Bulldog Pride Fund scholarships to be awarded in the 2014-15 academic year are currently being accepted online. Details: Deadline to apply is Feb. 28, 2014.

“Donors can make a direct impact on the life of a Fresno State student by supporting theBulldog Pride Fund,” continued Robertson. “We offer the opportunity to make a sincere and long-lasting difference by helping to transform our scholars’ educational dreams into a reality.”
