Lt. Robert Merton Rawlins Merit Awards Virtual Ceremony

Friday, Mar. 5, 2021, 5–6 p.m.
Zoom link to be established closer to date

Students with major achievements in the classroom and in the community will be honored in a special ceremony on March 5 as recipients of the Lieutenant Robert Merton Rawlins Merit Award.

The award—one of the largest and most prestigious at Chico State—celebrates scholarship, extracurricular activities, and outstanding academic, and professional accomplishments. Awards are also based on evidence of a student's sincere intent to complete their education, to increase their personal knowledge, and to achieve success in every aspect of life.

The Rawlins merit scholarships are named in honor of Lt. Robert Merton Rawlins, who died piloting a B-29 bomber over Tokyo Bay during World War II. Wishing to leave a legacy in the name of her son, Fern Rawlins established the Lt. Robert Merton Rawlins Merit Award endowment in 1981.

Since the program's inception, more than $1 million in scholarships has been awarded to more than 800 deserving CSU, Chico students.
