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.
To apply for scholarships through the College of Health and Human Sciences, complete the CSU Scholarship Application (CSUSA). CHHS scholarships include:
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.
To be considered for need-based scholarships through the CSUSA, your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be submitted no later than March 1.
The CSUSA is competitive, with hundreds of applications each year for College of Health and Human Sciences scholarships. Applications are reviewed based on your academic record as well as your answers to the questions on the application. We recommend typing your essays in a word processing program to take advantage of spell checking and word counting. Once you are done, just copy and paste your text into the application.
Some scholarships require letters of recommendation and/or other documents. If you are applying for one or more scholarships that require letters of recommendation, you are asked to provide e-mail addresses for each reference. (A single reference may suffice for multiple scholarships, although some require more than one letter of reference. See specific opportunities for details.) These individuals will be contacted directly through the system to request that they upload their letters. Ensure ample time for these to be completed and submitted by your references by the deadline of March 1 at 11:00 p.m. (MST).
The CSUSA is provided through AcademicWorks. You may receive e-mails from AcademicWorks if you are selected for a scholarship or need to provide additional information for a scholarship opportunity. To ensure proper e-mail delivery, please add "email@example.com" to spam filters. AcademicWorks supports Google Chrome Versions 35 and 36, Mozilla Firefox Versions 30 and 31, Apple Safari Versions 6 and 7, and Internet Explorer Versions 10 and 11.
