Supporting Students with Scholarships

Scholarships help the College of Health and Human Sciences to attract outstanding students, make a college degree more affordable, and allow students to concentrate more fully on their studies and educational experience.

With one of the largest scholarship programs on campus, we proudly award 183 scholarships annually to 236 students totaling more than $430,000. This is a testament not only to our talented students, but to the caring dedication and generous spirits of our donors.

Giving to Existing Scholarships

  • Donate any amount to HHS Students First Scholarship Fund – which awards scholarships to outstanding undergraduate students in each of our disciplines.
  • Make a gift to one 183 existing scholarship funds in our college. We can help find the right one for you, or you can browse the current scholarships here.

Establishing a Named Scholarship

Named scholarships can pay tribute to a loved one or special faculty member, preserve a family name, or highlight a company presence. Scholarships connect the past, present and future!

  • Establish an Annual Scholarship in your name, in memory of a loved one, or in honor of a colleague or former professor. Annual scholarships depend on a gift from a donor every year. A minimum five-year commitment of giving is requested for all annual scholarships.
    • $2,500 and above: Donors may designate the program, department, and/or college in which the scholarship is awarded, as well as provide specific qualifications, such as GPA, financial need, class year, geographic location, and other appropriate criteria.
    • $1,000-2,499 annual commitment: Donors may designate the major, program, department, and/or college in which the scholarship is awarded.
  • Establish an Endowed Scholarship to award scholarships in perpetuity.
    • With an endowed scholarship, your contributions are invested with the CSU Foundation, and students are awarded scholarships each year from a portion of the earnings earnings generated by the principal of a gift (currently 4.25 percent). Any remainder is then reinvested in the fund to preserve and ensure growth of the endowment in perpetuity. Scholarship endowments may be funded at one time or up to five years. Your endowment will support students for generations!
    • $50,000 Minimum - Presidential Endowed Scholarship: Donors may designate the program, department, and/or college in which the scholarship is awarded, as well as provide specific qualifications, such as GPA, financial need, class year, geographic area, and other appropriate criteria.
    • $25,000 Minimum - University Endowed Scholarship: Donors may designate the major, program, department, and/or college in which the scholarship is awarded.
