To apply to any of the CSUCI scholarships listed below, click the “Sign In” button on this page to begin. You must sign in using your myCI login information to begin your scholarship application.

Once you complete your General Application, the system will automatically match you with all scholarships in which you meet the basic criteria. Meeting the criteria means you will be entered into the pool of applicants for a particular scholarship. It does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.

The system will also provide a drop down menu of opportunities for you to review, which includes:

- Recommended – These are currently open scholarships, that may be recommended for you to review because you appear to meet the basic criteria. Typically, these scholarships have additional questions or criteria that you must meet to apply.
- Ours – Lists all CSUCI Scholarships, excluding external scholarships.
- External – This list of scholarships are from non-CSUCI scholarship organizations. They have their own application and deadlines. For more information, click on their hyperlink.

PLEASE NOTE:
To be considered for CSUCI Scholarships, you must either file a 2021-2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a 2021-2022 CA Dream Application. You are not required to complete both. If you are a US Citizen or Permanent Resident, you must file a 2021-2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://studentaid.gov/. If you are an eligible AB540 student, you must file a 2021-2022 CA Dream Application at https://dream.csac.ca.gov.

Two Letters of Recommendations are required. The reference must upload the letters online no later than March 2, 2021, by 11:59 PM (PST). A submitted scholarship application that is missing one or both letters of recommendation after the due date will be considered incomplete and will not be reviewed for any CSUCI scholarships.

The Personal Essay should be 300-500 words and completed by the March 2, 2021 deadline.

For more information, please contact the Financial Aid & Scholarships office at (805) 437-8530 or by email at scholarships@csuci.edu.
