The Pauling Family has endowed the Crellin Pauling Student Teaching Award so that two awards ($2,000 each) will be made to student teachers or teaching assistants in biotechnology-related settings, courses and programs. In line with the AAAS/NSF Vision & Change Report, we know that recognition for outstanding teaching practices is an important component of changing the way science and engineering is taught to better match the way it is done.
The Crellin Pauling Student Teaching Award acknowledges outstanding student teaching achievement by a California State University (CSU) student in biotechnology-related settings, courses and programs.
This award is named after Professor Crellin Pauling (San Francisco State University) for his extraordinary contributions to the training of teachers and scientists and his commitment to the creation of a scientifically literate electorate.
