REMINDER: 2024 McCrone Graduate Fellowship Award

January 24, 2024

This is a friendly reminder that the deadline for the Alistair and Judith McCrone Graduate Fellowship Award is approaching! The fund was created to honor Dr. and Mrs. McCrone, who together supported Cal Poly Humboldt and its students for over a quarter of a century. This award will recognize one outstanding graduate student, acknowledge their potential, and encourage their continued achievement in their graduate program. 


● First year students who have been in their Cal Poly Humboldt Graduate Program for less than one academic year are eligible for nominations 

● Graduate students must be enrolled full time (at least 9 units per semester), and have at least a 3.0 GPA 

Only one candidate may be nominated per graduate degree program, submitted by the program coordinator. Graduate programs that have more than one option (not emphasis) may nominate up to one candidate from each option. 

Award Amount: One award of $3,000 will be applied to their tuition for use in Academic Year 2024-2025 

Submission information: Completed nominations must be submitted electronically by the graduate coordinator through our online portal which can be accessed through Engagement Hub by Thursday, February 29, 2024 by 11:59 pm. Incomplete or late nominations will not be considered. 

Important date: Awards will be presented at a reception held from 4-6pm Tuesday, November 12, 2024. The recipient must be available to attend the reception in-person and give a short presentation of their research. 

Selection Process: The Planning Committee for Research, Scholarship, & Creative Activities in collaboration with one previous Scholar of the Year will select up to three award recipients in Spring 2024. Award announcements will be sent out by April 15th.
