Outstanding Graduating Senior Award

Each year four graduating seniors are presented with the Outstanding Graduating Senior Award in recognition of academic excellence, contributions to campus and community, and exceptional achievements or personal life circumstances that have been overcome. These $2,000 awards are funded by the Alumni Association, the University Foundation, and the Karen, Leon & Reta Goldstein-Saulter Memorial Fund. Each recipient will be honored at the All University Virtual Commencement Ceremony at 5:00pm on Saturday, May 15, 2021.

To be eligible, a student must have a degree award date of Fall 2020, Spring 2021 or Summer 2021. Only students with a minimum GPA of 3.0, either cumulative or in the last 60 units, will be considered. Students must complete the Application Form, including a Statement of Qualifications, and submit two letters of recommendation from faculty, staff or administrators. At least one of the recommendations must be from a member of the Cal State Northridge faculty.

In furtherance of the university’s COVID safety protocols, completed applications should be scanned and emailed to our office as an attachment to michael.clemens@csun.edu

Deadline: Friday, March 26, 2021. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs at (818) 677-2391.
