Joan Gaynor Kuder Scholarship In 1989, the Joan Gaynor Kuder Scholarship was established in memory of Joan who served 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.  The first scholarship was awarded in 1992. There are two scholarships available for this academic year, each for $2,500.  The Scholarship Committee is seeking applications for these scholarships from 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. The recipient(s) must be enrolled at that time to receive the funds. The application form is at www.studentaffairs.colostate.edu/kuder-scholarship.

Janet and Allan Eddy Scholarship
