San Francisco State University announced today a historic grant from the Genentech Foundation of $10.5 million over the next five years, building upon a CoSE program that has shown tremendous success in supporting students as they prepare for careers in the life sciences. The grant is the largest ever awarded by the Genentech Foundation and also counts among the largest received by the University.

“This is a landmark grant for both the Genentech Foundation and San Francisco State, and we appreciate their generosity in investing in our students,” said SF State President Lynn Mahoney. “The grant demonstrates recognition of SF State’s outstanding track record in preparing our students to become productive members and leaders of the Bay Area workforce of the future.”
