Marino J. Riccomini Family Scholarships

(Current Academic Year Opportunity) The Marino J. Riccomini Family Scholarships were created in 2015 in memory of Marino J. Riccomini, an advocate of higher education who wanted to provide opportunities for college success to those for whom financial need might otherwise be a barrier.

Established by his daughter Lisa Riccomini, his widow Linda Riccomini, and his son-in-law Garrett Clancy, the scholarships are intended to support CSUN students who demonstrate financial need, who are in good academic standing with the university, who show a desire to succeed in their academic careers, and who have successfully completed University 100.

All CSUN freshmen who meet the criteria are eligible to apply including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Applicants must have demonstrated financial need by completing the FAFSA or California Dream Act Application (CADAA). Up to ten $1,000 scholarships will be awarded each academic year.

Students who took a U100 course at CSUN during the summer or fall 2020 terms are eligible to apply.

Applicants will be reviewed by a committee of CSUN faculty and staff familiar with University 100.

Please contact The Director of Academic First Year Experiences at should you have questions regarding this scholarship opportunity.
