Dale M. Schoettler Scholarship for Visually Impaired Students

The Dale M. Schoettler Scholarship for Visually Impaired Students was established in 1991 for San Francisco State and San Jose State University students to receive a quality education in pursuit of a professional career in business, humanities, arts, and the sciences. After Mr. Schoettler’s death in 2001, the California State University received a $4.8 million bequest from his estate to expand the existing financial aid program for legally blind students to all 23 CSU campuses. Mr. Schoettler, who was blind the last eight years of his life, was a businessman from Mountain View, California.
