Now Available: A New Way to Apply for Scholarships!

The CSM Online Scholarship Finder is now open for students to apply for scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year! This year the CSM Online Scholarship Finder is getting a new look! With improved program capabilities, applying for CSM scholarships will be more streamlined and easier than ever! Enhanced program features include the following:

  • Apply using your myCSMD account

 Important Application Information

 Students applying for 2015-2016 CSM scholarships must complete the following steps:

  • Submit a CSM Admissions Application. Completion of a CSM Admissions Application will provide you with a CSM Student ID number, which is required to login to the scholarship application.
  • Students must have a valid e-mail address on file with CSM, as scholarship notification decisions will be sent via the e-mail address on file with CSM. If you need to provide or update your e-mail address, please complete the update Contact Information Form, available here.
  • Scholarships may require verification of previous grades.

    • If you have never enrolled as a degree seeking student at CSM (current high school or incoming transfer students): You may need to submit an academic transcript from your current institution. You can submit an unofficial transcript to complete the online application process. The transcript can be uploaded directly into the online scholarship application.
    • Current or previous CSM students: Upon submission of your FAFSA, your CSM academic record will be automatically uploaded into the online scholarship application. You do not need to provide further proof of CSM academic grades. If you have taken classes at another institution after your most recent semester at CSM, you will need to upload an unofficial transcript from your other institution.
    • Scholarships may require letters of recommendation or reference letters. Applicants can upload reference letters directly into the scholarship application.
    • The application deadline for 2015-2016 scholarships is May 31, 2015.

    Each year the CSM Foundation awards scholarships in a number of academic programs of study to students with varying backgrounds and needs. Students should check back often for the most up-to-date information and complete scholarship eligibility criteria.
