John and Elizabeth Leonard Scholarship

The John and Elizabeth Leonard Scholarships award two $4,500 scholarships yearly, one graduate and one undergraduate. The scholarships will be awarded to students who have been contributing to their own education costs through part or full-time work. The intent of the scholarship is to assist students by replacing or augmenting those earnings, thereby affording the student more time for academic mastery, research, or major-related internships.

John Leonard, Ph.D., is an alumnus with a B.S. in Chemistry (1969) and an M.S. in Biochemistry (1972) who gives back because his education at CSULB made it possible for him to get where he is today -- Sr. Vice President for Development at Vaccinex, Inc.
