Support SDSU Military-Connected Student Scholarships

Who we are:

The Joan and Art Barron Veterans Center at SDSU serves more than 3,000 military-affiliated students each year. The center is a hub for comprehensive military services, assisting our military community to make their dreams of attaining a college degree a reality.

What we do:

The Joan and Art Barron Veterans Center is truly the gold standard in veteran services on a college campus. Our organization supports our military-affiliated students through the admission and transition process, assists them in obtaining their VA education (G.I. Bill) benefits, and aides in their search for housing and internships. We further strive to help them focus on their fields of study by providing scholarship support to high-achieving military-affiliated students.

The Gomes Veteran Alumni Organization Endowed Scholarship was established in 2015 and is named for Dan Gomes (’01), a retired United States Marine Corps veteran and current president of the Veteran Alumni Organization. Thanks to generous supporters, 12 Aztecs have received an award in the amount of $1,000 each over the course of two years. 

Why we need your help:

The veterans center relies on private funding from alumni and friends of the university to support its programs and scholarships. Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to support the Gomes Veteran Alumni Organization Endowed Scholarship in its third year. 

Your gift in any amount will support the veterans center's mission to ensure our military-affiliated students are equipped with the tools they need to reach their collegiate goals.
