Welcome to the San Francisco State University Scholarship website! The scholarships listed below are San Francisco State University scholarships offered by various colleges, departments, and offices throughout the University. Click on the scholarship name to learn more about the opportunity.


The keyword search is a powerful search option, but it is important to note that it searches the specific word(s) you select from the text used in our database.
You can conduct a keyword search by:

  • Specific keyword (e.g., veterans, AB540, disability, community service, community involvement, etc.)
  • Major or college (e.g., enter “business” into the keyword box and click search for a list of business program scholarships or Science and Engineering, Liberal & Creative Arts, Health and Social Sciences, Business, Graduate College of Education, Ethnic Studies)
  • Enrollment status (e.g., entering or continuing)
  • Scholarship name
  • Sign in, complete your General Application, then click the “Show Filters” button for other searchable fields: keyword, “Scopes” (e.g., Journalism, College of Business, Office of Student Financial Aid, etc.), major, current class level, SF State GPA, and Cumulative GPA. Searching by “Scopes” will give you all current scholarships administered by the College or department or office. This “Show Filters” search will give you scholarships that you are eligible for by matching your information with each specific scholarship criteria. This search is recommended for “major” specific or “general” scholarships that are administered by specific Colleges, departments, and offices.

To apply to any of the campus scholarships, click the gold “Sign In” button to begin. You must have a SF State ID number to be able to sign in and begin your scholarship application. Once you complete the General Application, scholarships that are currently “open” will be recommended to you if you meet the basic criteria. If a scholarship is not yet available, check with the college/department/office administering the scholarship regarding the date the scholarship will be available to apply to.

There are some scholarship opportunities you do not have to apply to, but will be automatically matched to after you complete your General Application.

The General Application you completed will be kept until July/August of each year. You must complete another General Application at the beginning of every Fall semester.

When you are viewing the scholarship opportunity, if “Financial Need” states “Not a Requirement” this means you do not have to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or CA Dream Application to determine financial need. Check the “Criteria” to see if you must demonstrate financial need another way. Also, if the “Citizenship” states “Any” this means that any citizenship status may be eligible, including international students and students with an AB540 status.

If you have any questions regarding a specific scholarship, be sure to contact the person or department listed on the scholarship opportunity page.
