Department of Mathematics & Statistics
2014-2015 Scholarship Awards

Each year the Department of Mathematics & Statistics offers a number of scholarship awards to students majoring in mathematics.  The various scholarships - the Professor Richard Cleveland Memorial Math Scholarship, the Lorraine Erickson Scholarship, the Kearns Mathematics/Statistics Scholarship, the Stewart Moredock Scholarship, the Elizabeth O'Connell Memorial Scholarship, the Voula Steinberg Blended Program in Mathematics Incentive Award, the Voula Steinberg Blended Program in Mathematics Scholarship, the Voula Steinberg Memorial Mathematics Scholarship, and the Voula Steinberg Award for Promise in Teaching - are funded through their respective endowments and trusts.

In general the awards recognize students for their academic achievement, mathematical ability, participation in mathematics related activities, or professional promise, with each scholarship having specific requirements as described below.  Students who are currently enrolled at CSUS are encouraged to apply for all scholarships for which they are qualified and should read the eligibility criteria for each award before applying.  No discrimination shall be made on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, age, disability, or Vietnam veteran status.
