CSBS Announces Sally Casanova Scholars for 2007-2008

(NORTHRIDGE, Calif., July 17, 2007) --The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences proudly announces that eight students from the departments of geography, history, psychology and sociology have been selected to be among the 77 Sally Casanova California Pre-Doctoral Scholars for 2007-2008.

The program is designed to increase the pool of university faculty by supporting the doctoral aspirations of individuals who are: current upper division or graduate students in the CSU, economically and educationally disadvantaged, interested in a university faculty career, U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and leaders of tomorrow.

Students who are chosen for this prestigious award are designated Sally Casanova Scholars as a tribute to Dr. Sally Casanova, for whom the Pre-Doctoral scholarship is named. These scholars are exposed to unique opportunities to explore and prepare to succeed in doctoral programs. CSU and UC faculty members are an integral component of this program as they work closely with scholars to prepare them for graduate studies.
