The California State University has selected 23 students — including Cal State Fullerton public administration senior Todd Callahan — who have demonstrated superior academic and personal achievement to receive the 2015 CSU Trustees’ Award for Outstanding Achievement.
The awards are the highest recognition of student achievement and provide scholarships of $6,000 to $12,000 to CSU students who are in financial need, experienced personal hardship and exhibit exemplary scholastic performance and community service.
The CSU Board of Trustees, CSU Foundation Board of Governors, faculty, students and staff will publicly recognize the scholars — one from each of the CSU campuses — during the Sept. 8 CSU Board of Trustees meeting.
“These trustees’ scholars are leaders on their campus, in the community and among their peers,” said CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White. “Their stories of drive, commitment and perseverance – often overcoming great odds – serve as testaments to the indomitable spirit of CSU students.”
