campaign to raise $50,000 to endow a new scholarship – the USP President’s Award that will provide $2,000 annually to the student elected as President of United Student Pride, a

“The USP President’s Award will support a Fresno State student on their educational journey,” said Peter Robertson, founder of the Bulldog Pride Fund
anda three-time Fresno State graduate. “This new award will also provide the perfect opportunity to actively support emerging leaders from within our community.”Additionally, the USP President’s Award will be bestowed by the Bulldog Pride Fund. The fundraising goal is to announce the inaugural scholar by the 2015-16 academic year.“I’m so committed to this important cause, that I’ve personally pledged $5,000 to support it,” added Robertson. “It’s my sincere hope that others will do what they can to bring the USP President’s Award project to successful fruition.
