Scholarship Giving at Chico State

Chico State is committed to making a college education accessible to anyone who wishes it, and scholarships are the key to meeting this goal. When you establish a scholarship you are investing in an individual and our future. A scholarship provides much needed financial assistance to deserving students, but perhaps more importantly it inspires, encourages, and conveys the power of giving. You can make a difference through scholarship giving.

Over 60 percent of Chico State students receive financial aid, and they rely on the availability of scholarships to make their education possible. Most students need to craft a plan that includes financial aid, a family contribution, income from a part-time or work study job, and student loans to pursue a college degree. Many who graduate are burdened with loan debt as they enter the workforce. Your support is absolutely critical to our ability to recruit and retain these students who enrich our campus and community.

Scholarships can be endowed or annual funds, they can help bring top-performing students to Chico State, or help those who are here to complete their degrees. Scholarships honor, acknowledge, or memorialize important people and their contributions. Scholarships are a way to give back and express gratitude. They are a way to have real impact on our future.
