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.

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/.

Two Letters of Recommendations are required. The reference must upload the letters online no later than March 2, 2021, by 11:59 PM (PST).
