For excellence in the field of sustainable energy and environmental stewardship:

The CSU Energy Institute is offering a campus-wide interdisciplinary minor in sustainable energy administered through the School of Global Environmental Sustainability. This minor is different than most at CSU because it is designed to accommodate students from any major. Also, we have launched an Energy Club aimed at promoting and advancing student participation in energy-related research, writing, and artistic endeavors as well as energy conservation initiatives.

The CSU Energy Institute will award up to four undergraduate student researchers, writers, and/or artists whose work exemplify and promote excellence in the field of sustainable energy and environmental stewardship. Winners will be featured at the CSU Energy Institute's Faculty and Student Forum.
