Marino J. Riccomini Family Scholarships

(18-19 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 for one of the ten scholarships available for the Fall 2018 term, including undocumented students, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, and students enrolled in the EOP program. Applicants must have demonstrated financial need by completing the FAFSA. Up to ten $1,000 scholarships will be awarded each academic year.

Student applicants will be screened by a committee of CSUN faculty and staff familiar with University 100. Preferred candidates will have demonstrated a commitment to succeeding in their academic careers and must have successfully completed University 100 at CSUN.
