Gerald M. Starek Family Alumni Association Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded to incoming freshman, transfers, and current undergraduate students whose major is within the Department of Accounting and Finance. Students must have demonstrated financial need, be enrolled full-time, and have a minimum 2.75 GPA.

The generosity of alumnus Gerald M. Starek, accounting and finance, has paved the way for accounting and finance students to pursue their education. In addition to this award, Mr. Starek created a program in athletics that benefits a student-athlete in accounting and finance.

“I was the oldest of eight kids and the first to graduate from college. I could not have gone to SJSU if tuition was as high as it is now. With this gift, I can help students, who otherwise couldn’t afford college, receive a great education at SJSU like I did.” – Gerald M. Starek, ’63
