Before you begin, please review the Scholarship Criteria.
Please write an autobiographical essay in which you cover your short and long term educational and career goals, and the ways in which you meet any specific criteria listed for the scholarship to which you are applying (e.g. leadership qualities, interest in water-related issues and/or water-related career, water policy, commitment to environmental issues, interest in graduate study beyond a masterâ€™s degree etc.).
Please refer to the requirement page for each scholarship for specific details. At the end of your essay, please also list geology courses taken (at CSUSB and elsewhere) along with the grade earned in each course and average grade in all geology courses.
If a scholarship you are applying for requires an essay on a specific topic, this must also be submitted in addition to your autobiographical essay. It can be in the same file, but must start on a separate page, with a title that lists the name of the scholarship to which this essay is addressed.
I agree to adhere to all scholarship terms and guidelines as set forth by the California State University in the scholarship criterion which includes the requirement that I remain a student in good standing during the entire academic year.
I further agree to repay any scholarship funds as requested by the California State University on behalf of the scholarship fund donor in the event that I am unable to fulfill my academic commitment for any reason and to notify the Geology Department in writing.
I further agree to have my name and personal achievements publicized in recognition of receiving a scholarship.
