Scholarship

This Scholarship program was established by the Cal State Fullerton Alumni Association and is sustained by the continued generosity of Titan alumni. Select programming and events throughout the year, organized by the Alumni Association, continually allocate funds towards this Scholarship program.

To be eligible for our scholarship, students must attend CSUF for the 2019-2020 academic year. Students must enroll at CSUF as a full-time student for two consecutive semesters. Graduate students may be first-year students if they are CSUF alumni. Recipients may not receive more than $5,000 in total scholarship money per year.

Please note scholarship award funds must be used in the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year. Funds may not be transferred to another school or program. Recipients will be invited and encouraged to attend signature alumni events for the 2019-2020 year.

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
  • Family Day/Concert Under the Stars in September
  • Vision and Visionaries Banquet in February
This year's scholarship process was different because we were given the wonderful opportunity to award more scholarships. We had lots more applicants as a result. After going through the applications and then having thoughtful interviews with our finalists, the committee has found some of the best and most deserving Titans who'll champion our university even after graduation.
