Grants and Scholarships
The U.S. Department of Education and the University of the Pacific's Office of Financial Aid have provided funds for a limited number of grants for qualified students in SUCCESS. These grants are designed for SUCCESS students who are current PELL grant recipients to help meet any unmet financial need (as determined by the Office of Financial Aid).
SUCCESS Grant Qualifications
To qualify for a SUCCESS grant, you must meet the following:
- Current participant in SUCCESS at the University of the Pacific
- Current PELL grant recipient
- Satisfactory academic standing (minimum of 2.0 GPA)
In keeping with U.S. Department of Education guidelines, priority is given to freshmen and sophomores. Preference is also given to students who are active in SUCCESS. Priority "points" are awarded to students for participating in other SUCCESS supported-events. You must sign-in as a SUCCESS student when attending these events.
SUCCESS Grant Amounts
SUCCESS participants may receive grants in the amount of up to $1,000.00. Grant applications are distributed at a workshop during the Fall semester, and awarded in January.
Stockton Pacific Rotary Scholarship
SUCCESS students at the University of the Pacific have been awarded scholarships from the Stockton Pacific Rotary for a number of years. Chartered on May 31, 1974, the club has been in existence just over three decades and is as strong as it has ever been. Stockton East Rotary club, named for its original location on the east side of Stockton, was named based on where it met. Stockton East Rotary club is part of Rotary International, the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary enables its members to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
Scholarships are awarded in honor of Daniel Walker, Collins Wight, and other deceased Past Presidents of Stockton East Rotary.
