2024-25 CEEP Award Recipients

On behalf of the Canisius Earning Excellence Program (CEEP) Review and Recommendation Committee, Yvonne Widenor, assistant vice president for academic affairs, is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2024-25 CEEP Scholarships.

The scholarships were granted to 67 students with 37 faculty members serving as mentors. The list of this year’s recipients, faculty mentors and their projects are listed above and can also be viewed by clicking here.

CEEP is an exciting learning and earning opportunity that pairs students with Canisius faculty for educational and rewarding experiences. These positions are intellectually demanding, create opportunities for applied learning outside the classroom, are closely related to a career or scholarly field and directly related to faculty scholarship. By working with faculty on research-focused projects, students are able to achieve a high level of preparedness for maintaining professional working relationships and for continued studies at the graduate level.

Congratulations to all the recipients!
