Five community college transfer students currently

Recipients of the Computer Science, Engineering and
Mathematics Scholarships (CSEMS) — $3,125 annually —
are: junior Hernan Arreola of Sylmar and senior Fabiola Gonzalez
of Anaheim, both computer science majors; plus junior Luz Ramirez
of Anaheim, senior Maria Robledo of Santa Ana and junior Adelberto
Zambrano of Garden Grove, all mathematics majors.
Eligible recipients are transfer students in select
majors and participants in the Math Engineering Science Achievement
Engineering Program supported by the statewide MESA office at the
University of California.
Students apply while attending community college,
says Sergio A. Guerra, director of Cal State Fullerton’s MESA
This fall, Cal State Fullerton was awarded $46,875
in support of the CSEMS program.
“These are academically talented students who
traditionally are underrepresented in the fields of computer science,
engineering and mathematics. To make ends meet, they are working
full time toward an undergraduate or graduate degree. These scholarships
give them financial support while they achieve their dreams,”
This is the fifth year that Cal State Fullerton has
been involved in the CSEMS program.
