CSU Richard K. Leffingwell Scholarship

This CSU Scholarship was established in the name of retired U.S. Army Officer, Richard Leffingwell, who graduated from CSU Northridge and joined the CSU Chancellor’s Office as a member of the trustees’ audit staff. Then he directed the CSU’s self-supporting financing activities, and later became the Director of Financing and Treasury. Richard worked with trustees, campuses, and the municipal financing community to establish viable systems for financing non-state projects at the 23 CSU campuses before retiring in 2004. This scholarship reflects his admiration for the university’s commitment to provide opportunities to foster the next generation of students who wish to be instrumental in serving the public.
