Financial Aid

San Diego State University awards scholarships to students to foster academic excellence, to develop talents, and to recognize leadership, community involvement, and outstanding achievement. Scholarships are also awarded to students who have overcome significant challenges to obtain an education and to provide financial support to students for academic related activities, such as conference attendance and study abroad. Search the scholarship database.

Students from various nationalities, citizenship or residency status, areas of study, and levels of academic achievement may be eligible for financial aid from a number of sources. Visit the Financial Aid Office online or in person for information about these opportunities, as well as payment and filing deadlines.
