Working at CSU

Joan Gaynor Kuder Scholarship applications available

October 2, 2013

Applications for the Joan Gaynor Kuder Scholarship are now available. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Nov. 1.

The Joan Gaynor Kuder Scholarship was established in memory of Joan in 1989. The first scholarship was awarded in 1992. Joan served Colorado State in several capacities during her 17 years of association with the university. She believed strongly in and encouraged life-long learning, and the important role it plays in employees' job satisfaction. Her family and friends established this scholarship to continue Joan's work.

Scholarship for employees

The Scholarship Committee seeks full-time, 9 or 12 month CSU employees (administrative professional, state classified, faculty) who have an active record of academic achievement and advancement, are working toward an identified educational goal, and have contributed to their particular units and/or to the University community by serving in additional capacities. Employees do not have to be formally admitted to a degree program to be considered for this scholarship. Past recipients are not eligible for the scholarship.

This is a competitive award. It is important that applicants provide thoughtful and clear responses to the questions. A completed application includes:

  • Responses to the short essay questions
