Joan Roberts and Honoring Dr, Edwin Roberts

Dr. Edwin Roberts was a beloved professor at CSULB in the Political Science department. He loved his job, and his colleagues expect that he would still be doing it to this day if he had not passed in 2005. Dr. Roberts was gone too soon, but his memory is not forgotten.

Dr. Roberts is survived by his family and his sister, Joan Roberts.

To honor his legacy, Joan became a part of the extended CSULB community by creating an endowed scholarship for students in the Political Science Department. The scholarship is titled the Edwin A. Roberts Memorial Endowed Award. It awards students in their Junior or Senior year and is based on scholastic achievement. Recipients must have a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
