Charles and Reta Ralph love the arts, especially opera, and take every opportunity to support this love. With this passion comes commitment. They created three very special scholarships in the College of Liberal Arts that reward our wonderfully talented students. The Charles and Reta Ralph Scholarship helps a student experience the very best instruction and reach their goals. The Charles and Reta Ralph Scholarships support students that exhibit passion and gift for vocal performance. We are appreciative of the financial support they give to our students, but their continuous presence within the art community, at CSU performances and as ambassadors for CSU Music, Theatre and Dance, is priceless.
