Academic Perseverance Award for Human Development Students

Give to the Human Development Department Program Support Fund and provide an immediate positive impact to support students through undergraduate research projects, experiential learning opportunities, Human Development Club student organization activities and professional society memberships and conferences.

Every Student Is a Future Leader!

Empower the next generation of leaders! Our students come from different backgrounds that contribute to our vibrant and growing professional community. You can help them prepare for their educational goals or careers by supporting their academic and community-focused endeavors. Examples of funded activities include attending or presenting at a professional conference in their academic discipline, participating in research symposiums or supporting costs to participate in community outreach.

Master of Public Health Program Health Equity Scholarship Fund

Scholarships will be awarded to students in the Master of Public Health program who demonstrate a commitment to upholding principles of diversity, equity and inclusion, and who are committed to addressing health disparities through service and research. Preference will be given to students who work as first responders or front-line public health workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

School of Education Emerging Leaders

Invest in local K-12 educators who are urgently needed as school leaders to reflect and support the needs of today’s diverse student population. Your Giving Day donation establishes a pathway for focused support, mentorship, training and education in social justice and equity perspectives and strategies for our schools to attain success for every student.

School of Nursing Innovation and Learning Laboratories Fund

Invest in the future of health care! Your gift supports student learning in two ways. First, the purchase of up-to-date equipment – such as IV pumps, feeding pumps, ventilators and EKG machines – allows students to learn on the equipment they will use to provide patient care in hospitals. Second, your gift supports the purchase of virtual reality scenarios where students experience realistic, yet safe, clinical situations to develop their direct patient care knowledge and skills.

School Of Education Paving the Way for Aspiring Educators

Help remove barriers to entering the profession of teaching by donating to this project. CSUSM’s teacher education candidates face a variety of rising costs as they seek to complete their teaching credential – from fees for credentialing exams to transportation costs incurred by going to local schools, and other life challenges and unexpected expenses. Your gift can help ensure that children get the best teachers.

Social Work Internships

Social work is a profession aimed at helping and empowering the most disadvantaged and vulnerable populations in our society. Our Master of Social Work (MSW) students complete significant internships in local community organizations but do not receive compensation. Students could greatly benefit from stipend funds to assist them in successfully completing these internships. Make a gift today and make a positive impact on our community!

Speech-Language Clinic

During the academic year, speech-language pathology graduate interns provide over 15,000 hours of free therapy services to individuals in the community. You can transform lives by supporting the CSUSM Speech-Language Clinic in its aim to give students authentic and vital clinical training opportunities, while also sponsoring a local community member to attend our clinic. Share your heart today and donate to the Speech-Language Clinic fund.
