Scholarships

The College of Health and Human Sciences is pleased to support our students with scholarships made possible through generous donations from private donors, including individuals, families, faculty, alumni, foundations, and corporations. In the 2014-2015 academic year, CHHS awarded 251 private scholarships totaling more than $390,000.

Find a scholarship that is right for you with the College's Searchable Scholarship Database!   To assist in your financial planning for the coming school year, we have provided approximate dollar amounts for scholarship awards in the descriptions. We do not guarantee the availability of all of these scholarships for next year, nor can we guarantee that the amounts awarded will be identical to those included here. Payment of scholarship funds is generally divided equally between Fall and Spring semesters. In some cases, the scholarship amount may be divided among two or more recipients.

The CSUSA will be available online at RAMweb beginning December 1. The deadline is March 1 at 11 p.m. (MST). Go to RAMweb at ramweb.colostate.edu and login using your eID. From there, you can select the CSU Scholarship Application.

Complete the General Application, and be sure to review and complete any Recommended Opportunities for which you wish to apply. Some scholarships require essays, letters of recommendation, transcripts and/or a resume. All of these documents must be submitted online by the application deadline for consideration. For further information and specific instructions, visit the CSUSA as soon as possible on or after December 1. Late documents, and documents submitted by fax, U.S. mail, e-mail, or hand-delivery will NOT be accepted.
