Apply for the 2016 CSU Trustees' Awards
Financial Aid Offices on each campus will review the applications to ensure that they meet all requirements. Then, in consultation with the campus president, each campus will select and forward one nomination to the CSU Foundation.
Each nominee will be awarded a scholarship in the amount of $6,000 for the 2015-16 academic year.
