Raul Henderson Spirit Scholarship

Historical Overview

Raul Henderson (1939-1999) was a Student Organization Advisor, A.S.I. Elections Advisor, Commencement Organization Coordinator, Homecoming Advisor, and assisted with numerous University events. Henderson was an active member of the Cal State LA community, mentoring and motivating students to maximize their potential while assisting with the development of strategies to reach their goals that at times seemed unattainable.

Henderson's strong convictions and values inspired students to pursue their hopes and dreams. He encouraged students to think outside of the box and made you feel as if nothing was impossible.

To commemorate the many years Henderson devoted to the Cal State LA community, the Raul Henderson Spirit Scholarship was created. EIGHT (8) $500.00 awards will be given to five undergraduate students and three graduate students who best exemplify Henderson's vision, spirit, and devoted energy to educationally meaningful activities. The applicants will be judged on scholastic achievement, Cal State LA contributions, community involvement, and a written essay.
