Dr. Charles W. Buck Scholarship in Counseling

The Department of Counseling is pleased to offer a new, annual scholarship funded by Dr. Charles W. Buck.  Dr. Buck served as director of the CSUF counseling center for a decade, beginning in 1966 and into the 1970’s. His generous donation will provide scholarship money in the amount of $1,000 for students who are enrolled in the Department of Counseling. Dr. Buck set the following criteria for the application:

  • Note: Students who have been awarded this scholarship in the past or the Brown-Broadbent scholarship are not able to apply.

Eligible students are invited to submit a letter indicating how they qualify for the scholarship using the above criteria as well as indicating their level of need and how this scholarship money might be used. Students should also include if they have applied for other scholarships during the Counseling program and how many scholarships were received with amounts awarded. A copy of the most recent unofficial transcript showing GPA should also be included.

Applications for this scholarship will be due Friday, February 14, 2020 by 5:00 pm with funding occurring in April 2020. Please send your letter and unofficial transcript to: Ginamarie Scherzi (gscherzi@fullerton.edu), Department of Counseling, EC 405.

Recipients of the scholarship will be meeting in person with the benefactor upon award. Students who do not win the scholarship are allowed to reapply, assuming they still meet the criteria in the next cycle. Students can earn this scholarship only once.
