Josie Otwell Award

March 16, 2018

The Office of the Provost is pleased to send out the call for the Josie Otwell Student Assistant Award for the 2018-19 academic year. We will provide one award for $6,000 based upon the Josie Louise Otwell Student Assistant Fund Endowment criteria (see attached for full details).

  • Students must be California residents
  • Students must be enrolled full-time at California State University, Chico
  • The funding may be used to “pay for student assistants who perform jobs for professors when other funds are not available from another source.” 
  • Each college dean may submit one application describing the greatest need within her or his college for funding to a professor for student assistant funding.

Please refer to the attached guidelines for more information. Applications should be submitted via e-mail to by April 2, 2018.  We will inform you of an allocation decision shortly thereafter.
