CSUS Schrödinger Equation Scholarship

The CSUS Schrödinger Equation Scholarship was created by Emeritus Professor of Chemistry Dan Decious and Mary Decious, an alumna of the Biological Sciences and Chemistry departments.

The purpose of the scholarship is to provide encouragement and financial assistance to students who demonstrate intellectual curiosity about the laws and processes of the natural world and whose academic goals may reach beyond attaining a baccalaureate degree and toward post graduate study in the realms of research, teaching or the health professions.

The scholarship acknowledges the recipient’s commitment to a rigorous curriculum and recognizes the significance of Ĥψ = Eψ, Erwin Schrödinger’s famous equation which is fundamental to the understanding of chemical structures and processes.
