CSUSM Scholarship Opportunities

CSUSM offers a number of scholarship programs supported by the generosity of our scholarship donors.  We are indeed fortunate that our donors are committed to ensuring that CSUSM students have access to higher education.  Their generosity reflects their support and commitment to recognizing the achievements of our students.  The  CSUSM General Scholarship Application, serves as one application for the various scholarship programs administered by CSUSM.  Applicants should also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year as most scholarships also consider financial need in the awarding criteria.  Each year, the CSUSM General Scholarship Application is available beginning in late January.  Typically, the application submission deadline is early March for scholarships for the following fall and spring semesters.  We are pleased that our Scholarship Faculty Review Committee, which reviews the scholarship applications and selects scholarship recipients, is comprised of all faculty members.  We believe this ensures that the selection process is fair and equitable as they consider all applicants for highly competitive scholarship programs.  Fall and Spring scholarship details are available online at the links below.

The 2015-16 Scholarship Application period is now open. The 2015-16 Scholarship Application Deadline is March 2, 2015.
