We understand that college is expensive, especially when the costs of tuition and fees are not the only expenses students are worried about.

Check out our resources and the various scholarships that are awarded for our ALVS student population! 

Many scholarships that are awarded to ALVS students can be found through the Colorado State University Scholarship Application (CSUSA).

Follow these steps to access the CSUSA.

  1. Log onto with your CSU NetID (eName and password).
  2. Select the CSU Scholarship Application link under the Financial Information heading (available on RAMweb from October 1 to March 1 at 11:00 p.m. MST).
  3. Alternatively, you may go directly to the CSUSA at any time of the year by logging onto with your CSU eID.
  4. Complete and submit the General Application.
  5. Complete and submit Supplemental Application(s) if required.
  6. Review your Recommended opportunities (at the top of the CSU Scholarship Application, hover over ‘Opportunities’ and then click, ‘Recommended’).
    • Some scholarships may ask additional questions specific to that particular scholarship. Click the ‘Apply’ button to answer any remaining questions.
    • If no action is required on a Recommended scholarship then your General and/or Supplemental application are all that is/are required.
