Basic Needs & Financial Support

We know that many students, particularly LGBTQ+ students, benefit from different types of basic needs & financial support. Check out the links below to find resources that may work for you.

Basic Needs & Financial Resources

Sometimes students need financial support beyond tuition and cost of attending CSU. Check out this page for information related to non-tuition financial resources, such as support for housing, food security, rent assistance, gender-affirming care and legal services.

CSU Scholarships

Check out this page to learn more about CSU-specific scholarships that support students’ cost of attending the university. We have some options that are intentionally created to support those impacted by issues related to the LGBTQ+ community and those who have demonstrated involvement and commitment to LGBTQ+ issues, social justice and inclusion. You can also find more information about additional CSU scholarships.
