Navy veteran Cameron Markowitz ‘18 joined the military at the age of 19 and served six years as an aviation rescue swimmer, door gunner and crew chief. After his military service — during which he was deployed twice — he knew his next step: complete his undergraduate degree.

“The University of San Diego has the best business school in San Diego and a fantastic program for veterans, so it made for a seamless transition,” says Markowitz.

Scholarships made a significant impact on his personal bottom line as a real estate student. He says that not having to stress about finances helped him earn higher grades. “I received a 90 percent discount on my education through scholarships, which was a huge financial blessing,” he says. “More importantly, being awarded these scholarships gave me a great sense of pride and honor.”
