Awards


The CSA has two awards for outstanding students: one for undergraduates and one for graduate students.

The Outstanding Undergraduate Student Award is designed to honor a current California undergraduate student (or one who graduated 2011-12 for the 2012 award) who has completed 9 units of sociology with a GPA of at least 3.0 and has earned distinction in scholarship and or in service to school, community, or the CSA.

The Distinguished Graduate Student Award is designed to honor a current graduate student enrolled in a California college or university graduate program (or who has completed a graduate degree in 2011-12 for the 2012 award). The student should be enrolled in (or have completed within the past year) a course of graduate study in sociology completing 20 graduate units of sociology with a GPA of at least 3.5 and has earned distinction in outstanding scholarship and or outstanding service to the school, community, or the CSA.
