The CalSouthern Difference Award

Established in 2012, the CalSouthern Difference Award is presented annually to a CalSouthern alumnus who has made a difference in his or her area of practice, field of study or local community through distinguished work, scholarship or service. The recipient of the award is selected from nominees submitted by CalSouthern learners, alumni, faculty and academic staff. The CalSouthern Award winner is recognized each year at CalSouthern’s annual commencement ceremony, and presented with a cash award of $2,500, to be used in furtherance of his or her work.

Since the award’s inception, the winners have come from widely varying fields and backgrounds. However, each of them inspire, and each of them perfectly represents the ideals upon which the CalSouthern Difference Award was founded.
