Supporting Students on Sun Devil Giving Day

Last Sun Devil Giving Day you helped SFIS raise more than $6,000 exclusively for student support and helped to establish the school’s first Charter Awards.  Twelve scholarships were bestowed to master’s and undergraduate students who exemplify the values of ASU’s charter in the areas of access, excellence and impact. Charter Awardees included first-generation U.S. Citizens, first generation college students, Tribal community members, international students, and 75% of the recipients were women.
