CSN President's Scholarship

CSN Diploma Seal

Congratulations to the CSN High School graduating class. Through your hard work and dedication, many of you are close to earning your associate degree soon after graduating high school.

With this thought in mind, CSN's Office of Financial Aid and Academic Affairs created the President's Scholarship to assist our CSN High School graduates in completing their associate degree by helping cover tuition costs.

To support your continued success, we offer a one-time President's Scholarship, applicable to classes you were dually enrolled in while attending CSN High School. This scholarship would cover $1,500 per semester ($3,000 academic year Fall/Spring semesters) for the first year after graduation.

Please review the information provided below regarding eligibility requirements and maintaining eligibility:

Qualifying Criteria:

Students will be awarded beginning in late August through the end of September 2023. Eligibility will be for the Fall 2023 and Spring 2024 semesters only.

Special note: Students graduating in Summer 2023 may be eligible for the scholarship. You must meet with a counselor and email the completed degree sheet to be considered.

To qualify as a Summer 2023 graduate, you must:

  • Complete a 2023-2024 FAFSA
  • Pay for Summer 2023 tuition. The Financial Aid Office will receive the eligible list from CSN High School near the end of June and can only award you once we confirm you meet eligibility requirements.
2024 Graduates

More information is coming soon.

Eligibility for Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 semesters only.

Special Notes:

This scholarship is a one-time offer to recent CSN high school graduates for the academic year immediately following graduation. Students not qualifying due to enrollment cannot have an award transferred to another academic year or school.

Students in their final semester to graduate: If you cannot attend full-time classes listed on your declared degree because you have less than 12 credits needed to graduate. You may be eligible for a prorated amount. Students will need to meet with a counselor and email a copy of the completed degree sheet showing anticipating graduation to be considered for the scholarship.

Maintain eligibility for Spring (SAP)

Scholarship recipients must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress for continued eligibility.  Please visit the Satisfactory Academic Progress page for more CSN's SAP policy information.

Benefits of completing an Associate's Degree at CSN

    CSN has world-class professors with not only graduate degrees, but most have “real world” experience in the field they teach. Professors maintain several office hours each week to help support students in reaching their success. Additionally, students will get to know their professors and other students at CSN since class sizes are smaller than most four-year colleges/universities.
