Wong Sayaman Equality Award - $1000 award

The Wong–Sayaman Equality Award is offered through the Queer Studies Program at California State University, Northridge.

Ronora Sayaman, a CSUN alumnus working in the private sector, began the Wong-Sayaman Equality Award for CSUN students. Her vision is to provide support to students from any academic major who are committed to a leadership role in Queer, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities. The award is given out at the Queer Studies Rainbow Graduation in May each year.
