International Scholarships and Tuition

Scholarships for New International Students

Our international scholarships range from $2,000 to $12,000 per year. Students receiving our largest awards have a combination of outstanding grades (GPA), challenging coursework, and demonstrate strong engagement in extracurricular involvement.

  • Students will learn of their admission decision AND scholarship award amount within 14 days after submitting an application
  • Scholarships are renewable each year as long as the student maintains good academic standing at CSU
  • To receive consideration for our largest scholarships you must apply by December 15. We will continue to award scholarships for later applicants until March 15.

Our scholarship review goes beyond traditional evaluations and looks at more than just your current grades to include your financial situation, need, and abilities to contribute to the CSU community. We know that international students enhance the overall campus culture and experiences for everyone in our community, and we want to help those students find their financial fit at CSU.

Please note that this estimate includes tuition, fees, housing, and other costs. See the additional costs chart below for a more detailed breakdown.

Undergraduate International Tuition

We want to make it as easy as possible to find and receive scholarships to attend Colorado State University. That’s why our International Enrollment Center has implemented a holistic scholarship model to help students get the financial aid they need to study in the United States and join us on our Fort Collins, Colorado campus.
