FA&S- CSU Systemwide- Howard C. Christiansen Endowed Scholarship

The Howard C. Christiansen Trust established an endowed scholarship in 2016 for students pursuing a bachelors or graduate degree in the study of engineering. Scholarship nominees for the CSU Trustees’ Award will be reviewed first. If there are not enough applicants nominated who are in an engineering field, then the scholarship may be awarded to a second pool of engineering applicants outside the CSU Trustees’ Award.

Award Period 2023-2024:


  • Demonstrate superior academic performance with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and be in good academic standing
  • Demonstrate financial need as determined by the campus Financial Aid Office (Completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA) that correlates with the award period must be on file)
  • Be currently enrolled as a full-time equivalent undergraduate or graduate student in any engineering major field at CPP and remain a CPP full-time equivalent student during the academic year
