Our Time is Now
San Jacinto College is committed to the citizens of East Harris County, its students and academic excellence. Every dollar invested in helping students succeed today changes lives and provides economic prosperity to local families and communities through a trained workforce. Education improves the quality of life for the entire community and enriches individuals and their families.
Today, many of East Harris County’s K-12 students who could become our future scientists and artists dream of improving their lives through higher education, but to them it seems an impossible dream.
We must help all of our students realize their potential by providing them with the funds they need to complete their college education. In order to open the doors of opportunity to these young students, especially those who show ability and interest in the sciences and arts, San Jacinto College Foundation initiated the Promise for Their Future scholarship to provide hope and opportunity to these talented young people.
$1,000,000 to endow the Promise for Their Future scholarship fund.
San Jacinto College has taken a progressive stand by providing our returning veterans with a place for counseling, camaraderie, and quiet study on each of our three campuses.
These Centers of Excellence for Veteran Student Success, will provide trained and certified personnel to assist our veterans in succeeding in their educational goals.
