CSU Scholarships

Scholarships Catalyze Opportunity and Optimism

Your scholarship gifts help Rams unlock their potential at CSU. Each student is unique, but they all share a drive to explore, question, connect, and build in ways that propel our state and world forward. And every student has a story – one of resilience, strength, and dedication.

I have gained so much knowledge and confidence in myself while at CSU. These scholarships will help me keep my education going in graduate school. Thank you!” – Sarahy Quintana Trejo, Gil Gutierrez Memorial Scholarship
