Associated Students Scholarship Honoring Students who Lost their Lives in the Northridge Earthquake

The Associated Students is the primary advocate for students at California State University, Northridge and provides excellent, meaningful programs and services designed to create and enhance a spirited, learning-focused campus environment.

The Associated Students at California State University, Northridge established the Associated Students Scholarship Honoring Students who Lost their Lives in the Northridge Earthquake to recognize the toll the Northridge Earthquake had on the campus community. The January 17, 1994 Northridge Earthquake is recognized as the costliest national disaster in US history. The earthquake caused the most extensive disruption and damage to befall a university in US history. Two CSU Northridge students and one LA Valley College student perished in Northridge during the earthquake, representing a permanent loss to CSU Northridge, their families and the community. Scholarships in their names memorialize this moment into university history, recognizing that the loss of students is as tragic as the loss of University facilities. Scholarships in the names of Jamie Reyes and Manuel Sandoval are humanitarian awards from students of this university to future CSU Northridge financially need-based students. This Scholarship is intended for a student who actively participates in humanitarian work.

This scholarship is open to continuing CSUN students.
