Eddy Scholarship

Janet and Allan Eddy Scholarship

The Janet and Allan Eddy Scholarship was established to annually provide a $2,000 scholarship to two eligible Colorado State University employees who have made sustained progress toward attaining an undergraduate degree from Colorado State University. Janet and Allan Eddy worked at Colorado State University over 30 years.  They worked in a number of offices including Enrollment Services, Human Resources, the Music Department, Hartshorn Health Center and the Alumni Office. They have encouraged family and fellow workers to continue their education as a way to prepare themselves for both work and home.  As employees, Janet and Allan have seen some employees struggle to complete their education while they are working. Allan is a graduate of Colorado State University College of Business and their two daughters, Cheryl Ann and Sandra Lynn, are graduates of the College of Engineering.  Janet coordinated the Colorado State University Alumni Marching Band for eleven seasons.   Both Janet and Allan have been active with on-and off-campus programs supporting the elderly.  They hope this scholarship will provide both the incentive to continue pursuing a degree as well as some meaningful monetary assistance to the person chosen.  The scholarship will be awarded for Fall 2022.  Recipient must be enrolled at that time to receive the funds.

The Joan Gaynor Kuder Scholarship was established in memory of Joan in 1989. The first scholarship was awarded in 1992. Joan served Colorado State in several capacities during her 17 years of association with the University. She believed strongly in and encouraged life-long learning, and the important role it plays in employees’ job satisfaction. Her family and friends established this scholarship to continue Joan’s work. There are two scholarships available for the 2020-21 academic year, each for $2,000.  The Scholarship Committee is seeking applications from full-time, 9 or 12 month CSU employees (administrative professional, state classified, faculty) who have an active record of academic achievement and advancement, are working toward an identified educational goal, and have contributed to their particular units and/or to the University community by serving in additional capacities.  Employees do NOT have to be formally admitted to a degree program to be considered for this scholarship.  Past recipients are NOT eligible for the scholarship.
