Dale M. Schoettler Scholarship for Visually Impaired Students
The Dale M. Schoettler Scholarship for Visually Impaired Students is a CSU systemwide scholarship, offered to all 23 CSU campuses. It was established in 1991 by Mr. Schoettler, who was a successful businessman from Mountain View, California and blind the last eight years of his life.
Thirty-six (36) scholarships of $10,000 each will be awarded for the 2017-2018 academic year.
To qualify for this scholarship, applicants must:
- Be currently enrolled in 6.1 units or more as a CSU undergraduate or graduate student in any major field and must remain enrolled in 6.1 units or more during the academic year in which the award is received
- Currently have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale (and must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale during the academic year in which the award is received).
- Have a visual disability and provide verification from a medical health professional, which includes the best corrected visual acuity notations. (Please note that the disability must be such that it impedes the educational process and necessitates accommodations, support services, or programs.)
Students who have previously been nominated and/or awarded the Schoettler scholarship may continue to apply each year they meet the qualifications.
This scholarship is open year round, until all 36 scholarships have been awarded and will disburse in the current academic year.
