Scholarships & Awards
Scholarships are awarded as money that can be used to pay for educational expenses. Scholarships do not need to be paid back and are a great way to pay for your expenses.
Make sure to check the scholarship binder regularly for updated scholarship information. We are located on the 3rd floor of the Student Services Building (#47). Fall is the best time to search and apply for scholarships.
When you receive a scholarship that is outside of CSUMB, check the scholarship requirements and notify Ashlie McCallon so we can add your award.
Other CSUMB and CSU Scholarships
Other CSUMB and CSU scholarship opportunities are available throughout the academic year with different deadlines.
