University and Presidential Scholarship Workshops 2018-19

November 27, 2017

Interested in applying for the prestigious University or Presidential Scholarship?

Come attend a pre-application workshop to find out how to apply!

The University Scholars award includes a $7,500 scholarship, a textbook discount at the Matador Bookstore, priority registration for classes and attendance at a reception at the University House with President Dianne F. Harrison. University Scholars have the opportunity to deeply explore their fields of interest and develop mentoring relationships with faculty members. Ideally, University Scholars will use the year awarded to prepare for the Presidential Scholarship competition.

The Presidential Scholars award includes a $10,000 scholarship, a textbook discount at the Matador Bookstore, priority registration for classes and attendance at a reception at the University House with President Dianne F. Harrison, and the opportunity to work closely with a faculty member on a scholarly project. The prestigious honor is reserved for Cal State Northridge undergraduate students who have earned at least 60 units with a 3.5 grade point average or transfer students who have earned at least 24 Northridge units by the end of the spring semester.

Workshop description: If you plan to apply for the University/Presidential Scholarship, you must attend a workshop to ensure you have all the information needed to complete the application. The mandatory workshop will provide useful advice and answers to questions.

Please be on time and prepared to provide your student ID number and CSUN Gmail address.

A current University/Presidential Scholar and faculty mentor may be present to offer their perspective and answer questions. Your faculty mentor is invited to attend the workshop with you or attend a session separately. Faculty mentors are not required to attend but it may be helpful for those who have questions.

Not sure which opportunity is right for you? You are encouraged to attend both sessions!

Not sure if you want to apply? Attend anyway!
