Awards and Scholarship

CSHEMA is accepting awards and scholarship nominations until March 31. Use the left-hand navigation to find out more about how to apply.

 Participation in the CSHEMA Award and Scholarship Program will bring you recognition by your peers, your local press, and your campus community, as well as a sense of accomplishment and a feeling of pride for your department.

This program encourages creative problem solving by rewarding new approaches to difficult challenges. Criteria by which entries are evaluated include the following: identification of a problem, method of implementation, cost effectiveness, and applicability to other institutions.

CSHEMA offers individual awards, institutional awards, and a scholarship. The Awards and Recognition Committee or Scholarship Committee reviews all entries and selects the recipients.

The awards are presented at the annual conference each year. Find past award recipients here.
