Each year CSUPERB supports several awards programs for California State University (CSU) faculty and students. A brief description of each is listed below.
We encourage CSU faculty to identify potential student nominees who show great promise academically and as research professionals. In addition we encourage you to consider nominating faculty colleagues for the Faculty Research and Andreoli awards!
