College of Science & Engineering Alumni Newsletter

Spring 2001

Scholarship, Scholarships…

    and more scholarships will be available for College of Science & Engineering (COSE) students. Here are the newly added scholarships:
    The College of Science and Engineering is establishing the James C. Kelley Scholarship to honor Dr. James C. Kelley for his outstanding, dedicated leadership as Dean of the College of Science and Engineering for the past twenty-six years. This scholarship will recognize and reward science and engineering students for outstanding academic achievement.  Dean Kelley has graciously offered to match all donations to this scholarship.
    To honor one of its founding faculty members, the School of Engineering faculty has created the René Marxheimer Memorial Scholarship fund. This scholarship will be awarded to deserving students in the School of Engineering. The generous donations from the Engineering faculty, the Marxheimer Family and friends, and alumni have totaled $4,000 - almost halfway to the target of an endowment scholarship of $10,000.
    The College invites contributions for both of these scholarships and the ongoing Student Project Fund. As you recall from the previous two issues of, we are using this fund to reimburse students up to $500 for their out-of-pocket research project expenses. In Spring 2001, the number of requests for reimbursement had doubled to 42. Since we have limited funds, an average of $150 was rewarded to each proposal.
    Please make checks payable to SFSU Foundation and send all donations to the SFSU College of Science & Engineering, 1600 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94132. If you would like to establish a new fund or have any questions regarding our Scholarships and Awards Program, please contact Lannie at (415) 338-7662 or email to:
