Attention Financial Aid Students:

If you are a Financial Aid Student, you must have an unmet financial need which is equal to or greater than the scholarship amount. If you are unsure about your financial aid unmet need, you can:

  1. Check the amount of financial aid unmet need on your myRAM Portal
  2. Contact the CCSF Financial Aid Office and ask them about the amount of your financial aid unmet need

Failure to follow this procedure may result in an overpayment which you will have to pay back to the College. Please avoid unnecessary financial aid problems and verify the amount of your financial aid unmet need prior to accepting a scholarship.

After you have verified your financial aid unmet need, you can apply for Select Scholarships online through ScholarshipUniverse
