The Financial Aid Office administers over 45 prestigious scholarships ranging from $600 to $3,000 per academic year. Unlike loans, scholarships do not have to be repaid and we encourage all students to pursue these opportunities actively. Students are required to submit a CSUMB Scholarship Application to be considered for all CSUMB scholarships listed. An additional application is not required unless otherwise noted on the scholarship criteria.
If you are an incoming freshman, be sure to check with your high school counselor as she/he may know of scholarship opportunities. If you are a current/continuing student at CSUMB, contact your major department or college as they sometimes find out about opportunities from professional organizations related to your major. All students – entering or continuing – should utilize this Financial Aid Scholarship website for additional resources.
You are required to notify the Financial Aid Office of any scholarships you are receiving, including those awards issued by academic departments as well as those awards paid directly to you. We must include this funding with your other financial aid award(s). If necessary, we may adjust other awards.
Below are a few examples of scholarships, and resources, available at CSUMB. For updated scholarship availability, please visit this site regularly.

Outside Scholarship Resources
Outside scholarships are private sources of scholarships offered from outside organizations.
Please note: You are required to notify the Financial Aid Office of any scholarships you are receiving, including those awards issued by academic departments as well as those awards paid directly to you. We must include this funding with your other financial aid award(s). If necessary, we may adjust other awards.
Students who receive scholarships from their high school or community groups or other outside organizations should have their funds sent directly to:
CSU Monterey Bay
Financial Aid Office (SSB, 3rd Fl.)
100 Campus Center
Seaside, CA 93955
CSUMB will then disburse the funds directly to the student based on the donor's instructions.
