Alhambra resident named as one of 11 Casanova Scholars



5151 State University Dr.
Los Angeles , CA 90032 United States

Eleven Cal State L.A. graduate students, including Kaitlyn Brown of Alhambra, were selected for the 2012-13 Sally Casanova Pre-Doctoral Scholar awards.

The University is one of the largest contingents in the California State University system to receive the prestigious awards.

An anthropology major, Brown plans to conduct graduate research on asphaltum production on San Nicolas Island. She is also interested in studying the archaeology, pre-historic technology, trade and emergence of complexity among hunter-gatherers.

Each scholar will receive a $3,000 award, covering travel expenses to doctoral-granting institutions and to attend professional conferences as well as fees for college applications and graduate exams.

Since 1998, more than 165 students from Cal State L.A. have been recognized as Sally Casanova Pre-Doctoral Scholars. Fifty percent of the CSULA students have entered top-ranking doctoral programs throughout the United States and in several foreign countries.
