Sixty community college students in San Mateo County each will receive a $6,000 scholarship for up to two years, thanks to the largest single scholarship donation in California community college history.

SMCCCD is part of a state-initiated program, College Promise, that seeks to reduce tuition to zero (it’s currently $46 per unit) if they meet certain criteria based on economic and other specific circumstances.

Apple Tree Dental, an independent nonprofit, just started a new program in October to provide education, preventive, and restorative dental care to students and faculty at CSM.

CSM Ethnic Studies Professor David Palaita joins Robert Handa on Asian Pacific America to discus the development and growth of Pacific Islander courses at CSM and City College of San Francisco.

The San Mateo County Community College District’s program, which invites students to take college courses on district campuses while still enrolled in high school, has become immensely popular.

CSM veterans Justine Evirs and Tiannia Romero speak with G.I. Jobs about the term “military friendly” and what it means to them.

The makerspace at CSM hosted a Salsa and Merengue workshop—a student led session on “making” dance. The space itself has the 3D printers, of course, and the Arduinos, but no technicians or dedicated classrooms.

College of San Mateo and the San Mateo Community College District came into being more than 90 years ago as an outgrowth of the San Mateo Union High School District. Thus began a partnership to serve young adults in our communities.

When Library Director Lorrita Ford started the makerspace she gathered faculty from science, technology, engineering, art and math disciplines to gauge interest. It was then she realized how much expertise and excitement already existed in the community.

Ariana Finato and Yareli Torres from CSM were selected to receive $1,000 from AIFS and $500 from SMCCCD Foundation Study Abroad Scholarship. As part of their scholarship, they will blog about their experiences in Barcelona on a weekly basis to be shared on the Study Abroad Program’s Facebook page.
