Support CHSU students by donating to student scholarships.

Without the financial assistance of CHSU Scholarships, a significant number of our students would not have the opportunity to pursue their career in healthcare.

Our CHSU students are a great reflection of the Central Valley’s diversity and many already call the Central Valley their home. Some are the first in their families to obtain a college degree. Many speak multiple languages that will help bring healthcare to underserved communities. And they need your help.

The One Hundred

The One Hundred was founded by community leaders to advance charitable giving and student scholarship opportunities for future health care professionals in the Central Valley.

In partnership with CHSU, The One Hundred mobilizes the power, passion, philanthropy, and principles of women committed to supporting CHSU students through scholarships. Through philanthropic activities, The One Hundred focus on these primary goals:

  • WOMEN EDUCATE the community about the urgent need to support health care education in the Central Valley.
  • WOMEN CONTRIBUTE to a permanent fund whose annual yield supports Central Valley students pursuing post-graduate education in health professional disciplines.
  • WOMEN EMPOWER one another and students to serve the health care needs of people in the Central Valley.

In partnership with a Valley philanthropic organization, CHSU medical and master’s program students are awarded scholarships each year.

Central Valley Community Foundation

The CHSU Scholarship Fund, established in partnership with the Central Valley Community Foundation (CVCF), is making a difference in CHSU students’ lives and enhancing the future of health care in Central California. For more than fifty years the Central Valley Community Foundation has provided giving options for individuals, families, businesses and other foundations to invest in many philanthropic organizations in the Central Valley that address social and environmental needs.

Bibi Aysha Patel

Student Doctor

“I am grateful for this scholarship and how it came at a time when it was very beneficial. My father unexpectedly passed away this year, causing drastic changes in my family’s financial plans for the future. With the scholarship, I am able to assure my family that they do not need to worry about me and allows me to completely dedicate my time to studying when not in classes, rather than finding side jobs to provide for myself.”

Raymond Alcaraz, PharmD

Alumni Pharmacist

“Receiving this scholarship was a huge thing for me. I could never repay the support our donors have given me, so it motivates me to get more involved in my community and CHSU to show my appreciation for this scholarship.  One of the biggest problems we face here in the Central Valley is the language barrier. You’ll see a lot of parents that only speak Spanish relying on their child to translate medical terminology from the pharmacist. I want to do something to change that.”

Carter Muajmoo Yang

Student Doctor

“I am blessed to be selected for this scholarship in pursuing my goals to become a physician. Medical school is a large financial investment, and this scholarship will lessen the financial burden. There are many stressors in medical school, but financial stress is the least of them, thanks to this scholarship.”

Karen Cruz Pelham, PharmD

Alumni Pharmacist

“When I was awarded this scholarship, I felt like somebody believed in me and saw my potential. I may not know our donors, but I do know that because of them, because of their support, I am here and I hope to make a difference in the lives of my community as a pharmacist. I’m very thankful that I have this scholarship.”
