CSI Agricultural Scholarships

There are two forms to fill out for all scholarships, the Federal Financial Aid Form and the CSI Scholarship form. You do not need to fill out the Federal form if you only want to be eligible for CSI monies. You need to watch the deadline dates for the CSI monies. (March 1)

Filling out the CSI scholarship form, indicating Agriculture as your degree choice, automatically sends your application to the CSI Agricultural Department for selection. It's that simple.
