Bakersfield College STEM student, Aaron Sproul, received PG&E’s $30,000 Bright Minds Scholarship which provides a $30,000 renewable scholarship each year.

PG&E presented Sproul with the scholarship in a surprise ceremony.

Congratulations, Aaron!

Aaron was a math tutor at BC and graduated with honors in 2012.  He then transferred to California State University Bakersfield (CSUB) where he is studying applied mathematics.

BC transfers students to the CSU system, the UC system and other four-year colleges across the nation.  Among the CSU transfers, CSUB gets the largest percentage.  In 2011-2012 approximately 73% of CSU transfers were to CSU Bakersfield.  Among the UC transfers, Davis, LA, and Berkeley more consistently had the largest number of transfers with Santa Barbara and Riverside making the top three periodically.

BC has a strong STEM program.  Check out previous blog posts at:
