Scholarship funds awarded must be used in the upcoming academic year and may not be transferred to another school or program.

Scholarship Expectations

Those selected as Alumni Association scholars are invited to participate in various events throughout the year. It is highly recommended that you attend as many of them as possible as they provide unique opportunities to connect with alumni. These may include:

  • Spring Alumni Association Board meeting in May.
  • Appreciation Night in August.
  • Vision and Visionaries Banquet in February.
A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special. That has always been the mission of Cal State Fullerton. The scholarship program provides the opportunity for great minds to flex and strengthen their academic muscle. It was a privilege to be a part of the process.
