In 2006, Dr. Ali C. Razi, CSU trustee emeritus,
endowed a scholarship fund to recognize the
top-scoring recipient of the CSU Trustees’ Award
for Outstanding Achievement. This extraordinary
individual is named a Trustee Emeritus Ali C. Razi
Scholar and receives a $15,000 scholarship.
Dr. Razi is credited with keeping the CSU Trustees’
Award in operation. When funding for this program
was in doubt, Dr. Razi stepped in—and inspired
others to do the same. Dr. Razi continues to serve
as chair of the CSU Trustees’ Award Selection
Committee and as a member of the California State
University Foundation Board of Governors.
Dr. Razi is chairman and principal of the Stratham
Group, a real estate investment and development
firm. He serves as vice chairman of the Midnight
Mission and trustee of the Farhang Foundation. In
2011, he received the Ellis Island Medal of Honor.
In 2002, he received an honorary doctorate in
Humane Letters from California State University,
San Bernardino, for his contributions to higher
education. Dr. Razi served as a member of the
Board of Trustees of the California State University
