Continue the Dream Scholarship

Continue the Dream for Academic Excellence Scholarship Fund


The Continue the Dream for Academic Excellence was established in 2011 by SF State staff and faculty to help students pursue their academic goals regardless of their immigration status.  We have supported 57 students of which 93% have either graduated or are successfully working towards graduation. Our goal is to continue to support as many students as possible year after year.

One of our founders, Karla Castillo, along with four other community members will be participating in a swim from Alcatraz to raise funds for this scholarship on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at The South End Rowing Club 22nd Annual Alcatraz Invitational. Last year we raised over $5,000 with your donations. Our students need your support now more than ever! Help us achieve our goal once more by donating. For more information contact us at
