Michael Bukys, a CSU student pursuing a doctorate in chemistry, was
presented with the J. Edgar Hoover Foundation Scientific Scholarship
The nationally competitive scholarship, awarded to students who excel
in an area of research that potentially benefits the study of forensic
science, encourages students to gain more knowledge in the field of
science in the hope of further enhancing the world of criminal investigation.
A small number of universities are invited to apply for the scholarship
and only one student across the nation is chosen as a representative
of what students can achieve to improve law enforcement.

research at a university after he graduates next semester.
According to Bukys, the scholarship will subsidize his college expenses.
