Heart of SSU Alumni Scholarship

Let's Make a Difference Together!

The student experience at Sonoma State University is marked in moments - those times that make university life at Sonoma State precious and unforgettable. Think back to your favorite moments there, and your senses come alive. 

There's energy in shared memories. Let's take that energy and pay it forward, as we empower current Sonoma State students now and in the future. 

The SSU Alumni Association is excited to introduce an easy, effective way to give back and make an immediate difference - helping to fund the new Heart of SSU Alumni Scholarship.
