Current Funding Opportunities

Renaissance Scholars Program

One-third of foster children will be on public assistance as adults and a quarter will be jailed within two years after leaving the system. While 70% of foster children say that they would like to go to college, fewer than 10% actually enroll. Of those who do enroll, only 1% graduate.

With your help, Fresno State is in a unique position to make a difference. The Renaissance Scholars Program would monitor and help students through every step of their college career . Join us as a “Partner for Hope.” Your contribution of at least $4,000 will provide the equivalent of one year’s tuition and helps insure year round support for each Renaissance Scholar you choose to support.

Student Cupboard

Food insecurity is a growing issue on college campuses. Fresno State is working hard to make sure that food insecurity isn't a problem on our campus. The Fresno State Student Cupboard provides current Fresno State Students, with free access to healthy food and hygiene items.

Your support can make the difference, meeting the nutritional needs of students so that they can focus on achieving their full potential. For more information about the Fresno State Student Cupboard, please contact Jessica Medina at 559.278.0866 or
