Camille Gibbs Memorial Scholarship

Camille Gibbs spent her life helping others, worked full-time, and was a mid-life student on the verge of accomplishing her life-long dream of a college degree.  Prior to her heartbreaking murder in 1991, Ms. Gibbs was an IDS/PACE major who began her studies here in 1989; she is one of the few persons who have been awarded a posthumous degree from CSUDH.  She was an exceptional person.  Her husband, Leroy, said she had lived a full life but wanted to do much more, and she felt special pride as an African American woman pursuing her bachelor’s degree. The week of her murder, the following quote from Leroy Gibbs appeared in The Daily News: “Many blacks face disadvantages during the early education years, and she considered this an accomplishment.  Every A that she got, she deserved,” he said.  “Her life was finally coming to fruition – all her dreams were coming true.  This is not the way it should have ended.”  In her honor, her family and co-workers joined with her fellow students and her professors to establish a scholarship in her name that would help future IDS/PACE students returning as adults to college.

Glenn and Dorothy Dumke Fellowship

The Glenn and Dorothy Dumke Fellowship was established in memory of Dr. Glenn S. Dumke, Chancellor of the California State University from 1962 to 1982.
 
Chancellor Dumke was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1917. He received his B.A. and M.A. degrees at Occidental College and his Ph.D. at UCLA. He also held honorary degrees from nine other distinguished universities across the country. In 1940, Dr. Dumke began his 42-year career in higher education as an instructor of history at Occidental College. He went on to become a professor of history and dean of the faculty at Occidental College before becoming president of San Francisco State College in 1957. While serving as president, Dr. Dumke was one of the principal architects of the Master Plan for Higher Education in California, which became the blueprint for the State’s higher education system. Under Dr. Dumke’s leadership, the university system made great progress in the breadth and quality of academic programs.  Quoting a former CSU chancellor, “He organized 16 separate academic programs into a single system that became a model across the nation... it happened because Dr. Dumke was a visionary leader.”
 
The purpose of this fellowship is to encourage student scholars to engage in graduate work in fields such as public policy, American history, economics, archival management and government.

Jim Sanders Media and Leadership Scholarship

James Sanders wasn’t known by that name. He wasn’t often called Jim. People working at the television stations in Sacramento, CA; Columbus, OH; San Diego, CA; and San Francisco, CA where he presided as news director knew him as Sanders. He was a leader, not just a manager. As one former employee said about Sanders after his death in September 2015, “Sanders was all about integrity. From the choice and quality of the stories he put on the air to his mentoring of countless people in all areas of news, he operated from a base of encouragement, never negativity. From a heart full of courage instead of fear. Sanders didn’t force you to do your best, he made you want to do your best. And he led by example, holding himself up to the highest standard and trusting that his people would rise to their highest potential. I am not unique in my love and admiration for this funny, charismatic, intelligent man; there are many of us who would have followed Jim Sanders anywhere.” This scholarship is to honor and support the leaders of today and tomorrow among the California State University student population. The media industries are changing and as the continued gatekeepers of information, the industries need people to lead, take risks, be creative, have a sense of humor, be intelligent, and challenge the status quo.

One (1) $2,500 scholarship will be awarded for the 2020-2021 academic year.
  • Students must have an interest in journalism, media, or communication.
  • Students must aspire to a career in media, but can be interested in any aspect of the industry including engineering, sales, production (audio, video and sound editing, etc.), graphic design, human resources, etc.

Theatre Arts and Dance Brenda Arrieta Killian Scholarship

The scholarship was established in May of 2009 in memory of alumnus Brenda Arietta Killian. Although she was unfocused as an 18-year old entering college, she came into her own when she got involved in theatre. She came from the surround­ing community, and grew to love the idea of sharing her passion with the community that shaped her. The Brenda scholarship of $500 is awarded to a student who is committed to theatre as a way of giving back. The recipient should be someone who is not only passionate about the arts, but maintains an awareness of the relationship between theatre and the community it serves.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: May 6, 2020
