There are several scholarships offered through the Honors Program, which are displayed below. These are typically offered in the spring semester and are normally awarded to students for their senior year. The Honors office will send information about the application process for these scholarships to eligible students.

In addition, many CSU colleges and departments offer financial support to their students through scholarships awarded each spring. In most cases, students need to complete the CSU scholarship application (CSUSA). The application is available on RAMweb starting on December 1st and must be completed by the deadline of March 1st. Check your college and department website for additional information about individual scholarships.
