Since 1988, the Patricia D. & William B. Smullin Scholarship has supported talented HSU students from North Coast high schools who embody a creative and innovative spirit.
The scholarship was established with a gift of $100,000 from William Smullin. During the past three decades, it has provided almost $650,000 to HSU students. The scholarship has given 206 awards to 110 students, thirty-two of whom have received support for all four years. Ten scholarships are awarded annually at an average of $5,000 per student—a significant boost for talented scholars pursuing their dreams.
In celebration of the Smullin Scholarship’s 30th anniversary, current and former recipients shared their thoughts on how it has shaped their careers and plans for the future.
