Current Students

CSULB offers endless scholarship opportunities for students. Scholarships are categorized by Campus Scholarships and External Scholarships.

  1. Campus Scholarships are only available to CSULB students based on your college/major and general university-wide categories. Students tend to have greater odds in being selected for these scholarships since only CSULB students can apply.
  2. External Scholarships come from organizations and business that want to provide scholarships to students, but are not affiliated with CSULB. Any college student (non-CSULB students) can apply to these opportunities. Any questions about External Scholarships should be sent directly to those entities.
