The Lisa Chan Memorial Scholarship is to honor the beloved wife of Robert Jung who lost her fight with cancer in March 2023.

There will be two $500 scholarships available to Milpitas High School, Milpitas Middle College High School, or Calaveras High School Class of 2024 who are ready to embark on a science or technology-related field. This scholarship will be awarded at the MHS Senior Awards Ceremony or Calaveras HS graduation and will be administered by the Milpitas Community Education Foundation.  We anticipate offering this scholarship over the next six years starting in 2024.
