Presidential scholarships are awarded annually for the outstanding academic achievements of graduating high school students and community college transfer students planning to attend CSU Dominguez Hills. Initiated in 1985 as a means of encouraging these students to continue their education and attend Cal State Dominguez Hills, the full scholarships contribute to the climate of academic excellence on campus. The scholarships also provide the financial support required by many deserving students, not only during their freshman year, but also throughout the student’s undergraduate education (if they maintain renewal eligibility). Please visit the Web site, http://www.csudh.edu/InvestInUs/ to read personal accounts of past scholarship winners.
The university’s Katherine B. Loker Friend of Education award will be presented to Ossur North America for its continued support for the CSUDH Orthotics & Prosthetics Program. Located on Ossur North America’s campus in Aliso Viejo, the 6,000-square-foot teaching facility provides state-of-the-art lecture rooms, patient interaction and rooms for the creation of prostheses. Ossur donated $750,000 in equipment, customized space and rent that saved the facility from shutting its doors and positioned it as the best in the country.

The evening’s activities begin with a reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by the dinner at 7:30 p.m. and dancing at 9:00 p.m. Dance music is being provided by, “A Touch Of Memories,” which includes a disc jockey.
