The California State University will honor 23 students, one from each campus, who have been selected to receive the 2019 Trustees’ Award for Outstanding Achievement. The students will be recognized during the first day of the upcoming Board of Trustees meeting to be held September 24 and 25 at the CSU Office of the Chancellor.

The CSU’s highest recognition of student achievement, the awards provide donor-funded scholarships to students who demonstrate superior academic performance, personal accomplishments, community service and financial need. Students receiving the awards have all demonstrated inspirational resolve along the path to college success and many are the first in their families to attend college.

“These 23 student scholars wonderfully embody the ideals and values of the California State University,” said CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White. “They have demonstrated brilliance, tenacity and extraordinary resolve in overcoming many obstacles in the pursuit of their academic goals. It is inspiring to consider the collective future impact they will have on their families, communities and the state of California.”

More than 360 students have been honored with the Trustees’ Award since the scholarship program was established in 1984 by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation. In 1999, the William Randolph Hearst Foundation partnered with the CSU Board of Trustees to supplement the endowment with contributions from CSU Trustees, CSU Foundation Board of Governors, and private donors. Each student scholarship bears the name of a donor.

Ali C. Razi, a CSU Trustee Emeritus and CSU Foundation Board of Governor, endows a scholarship fund to recognize the top CSU Trustees’ Award recipient annually. San Francisco State student Cheng Yu was named this year’s Trustee Emeritus Ali C. Razi Scholar and will receive a $15,000 scholarship.

The awardees will be recognized for their achievements during the Committee on Institutional Advancement portion of the Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday, September 24 at the CSU Office of the Chancellor.
