About the EFA

The CSUDH Emeritus Faculty Association was established to serve the interests of emeritus faculty and to support the academic life of the university. The Association sponsors a newsletter and a variety of on and off-campus activities to help retired faculty maintain contact with their colleagues and the campus. But the EFA is involved in more than just providing opportunities for pleasant get-togethers with old friends. We work to advance the status and preserve the rights of retired CSU faculty through our affiliation with the statewide Emeritus and Retired Faculty Association. The Association supports scholarships for students at CSU, Dominguez Hills. We maintain a voice for retired faculty on campus through our participation in the Academic Senate, and co-sponsor annual campus faculty honors and service awards. General membership meetings of the EFA are held on campus in the fall and spring. The spring meeting includes a luncheon where the new EFA members and the scholarship winners are introduced. As we continue to look for ways to advance the interests of retired faculty, we'd like to hear from you. Please join in the activities, events and meetings of the Association.

Scholarships of $1,000 to $2,500 are awarded annually to students demonstrating academic excellence and career commitment to teaching, academic research, educational administration or other types of public service. Financial need may be considered as part of the selection process. Preference is given to graduate students, but outstanding undergraduate students may apply.

A scholarship of $1,000 to $2,000 is awarded annually to allow registered undergraduate students majoring in biology, chemistry, or in a related field in the natural sciences to continue their studies.
