CSUSM College of Business Administration (CoBA) Student Success Grants (SSGs) are available to help students meet the costs of attending skills, knowledge-building, and networking events that will enhance their professional development. These may include, but are not limited to, attendance and /or participation at conferences, seminars, workshops, or work on research projects, practical application projects or publications.

CoBA recognizes that different programs have different professional development needs and opportunities, and encourages all students to apply for SSGs.

  • Must be a student who is currently registered at CSUSM at minimum as a pre-business student in CoBA.
  • Must be a student in good standing and the events or activities must be closely related to the applicant’s field of study, i.e. selected option.
  • Students may apply for a SSG award at any point while enrolled and registered at CSUSM as at least a pre-business student in CoBA. Graduating students may still apply for funds in their final semester as long as the event takes place prior to graduating from the University. We are not able to reimburse students post-graduation.
