Three at Cal State Fullerton Named
Pre-Doctoral Scholars


August 27, 2003 :: No. 29

Three Cal State Fullerton graduate students have been selected as Sally Casanova California Pre-Doctoral Scholars. They are among 86 such scholars named statewide for 2003-04.

The scholars are: Anaheim resident Carla M. Anderson, who is majoring in American studies; Fullerton resident Sylvia A. Beltran, a political science major; and Placentia resident Susan Shoho, a sociology major. Shoho was part of the university’s inaugural class of master of science in gerontology graduates in 2002 and received that year’s CSUF Alumni Association Graduate Senior Award.

Sally Casanova California Pre-Doctoral Scholars are selected annually by the Pre-Doctoral Advisory Committee, consisting of California State University and University of California faculty members and administrators. The CSU awards are named for the late Sally Casanova, who worked with colleagues in the CSU Chancellor’s Office and on various campuses to create the California Pre-Doctoral Program in 1989.

The scholars work closely with their faculty sponsors to develop a plan that ultimately leads to enrollment at a doctoral-granting institution. Funds provided to support scholars’ efforts can assist with such expenses as doctoral program application fees, graduate entrance examinations and preparation for them; travel with faculty sponsors to doctoral-granting institutions and professional meetings; and the purchase of reference books, software and journal subscriptions.

The Cal State Fullerton faculty sponsors are: Pamela Steinle, professor of American studies; Jon Bruschke, associate professor of human communication studies; and Eric Solberg, professor of economics and coordinator of gerontology academic programs.
