Celebrating Your Impact
“I’m proud to be part of CSU’s kind and supportive community. “Rams take care of Rams” is more than a motto – it’s a way of life seen every day on campus. CSU was my top choice, and my scholarship sealed the deal. Attending this top-tier institution without the burden of out-of-state tuition enabled me to fully embrace CSU’s offerings, including my favorite class on infectious diseases and leading the Ram Handler team!”
“As a new dad, I want to use my computer science skills to create solutions that make a difference in people’s lives and help make the world a better place for my daughter. Your generosity gives me hope as I navigate higher education’s complexities and the future’s uncertainty. With your support, I can fully focus on my studies and utilize CSU’s resources and opportunities.”
“After graduating, I want to focus on the technology sector and real estate investment in the construction industry. My long-term goal is to open a gym for veterans and first responders. Scholarships have enabled me to pursue my dreams and make a positive impact on others through my future careers.”
“Born in Eritrea and raised in Kenya, I later moved to Colorado for high school. My upbringing instilled a passion for learning and a deep curiosity about the world. After graduation, I plan to study international law and support immigrant communities via international organizations or embassies. Receiving a scholarship is an honor that helps me fulfill my goals and enrich the community.”
