- External – This list of scholarships are from non-CI scholarship organizations. They have their own application and deadlines. For more information, click on their hyperlink.

PLEASE NOTE:
In order to be considered for any CI Scholarship, you must either file a 2018-2019 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if you are a US Citizen or Permanent Resident, or a 2018-2019 CA Dream Application if you are an AB540 student. You are not required to complete both the FAFSA & the CA Dream Application. If you have not completed a FAFSA, and are a US Citizen or Permanent Resident, please log onto https://fafsa.ed.gov/ If you have not completed a CA Dream Application and are an AB540 student, please log onto https://dream.csac.ca.gov.

Remember that both letters of recommendations must be uploaded online by no later than March 2nd, 2018, 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 CI scholarships.

Our scholarship application period is January 1, 2018 to March 2, 2018 for the 2018-2019 academic year.

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