Outstanding Student Scholarly and Creative Activities Award

Application deadline: Closed  

The Outstanding Student Scholarly and Creative Activities Award recognizes excellence in student participation in research or creative activities. The award is presented to one undergraduate and one graduate student per college working collaboratively with a faculty member or independently on a research project or creative activity. All current CSUF students are eligible and must be nominated by their faculty mentor. Faculty may nominate students outside of their college; however, student nominees will be considered within those students’ colleges (not the faculty’s college). To nominate more than one student, please submit separate applications.
