To apply-to or be considered for nomination based campus scholarships, click the “Sign In” button to begin. You must have a SF State ID number to be able to sign in and complete the General Application. Scholarships that are currently “open” will be recommended to you if you meet the basic criteria (e.g., gpa or class level or major). However, read the scholarship eligibility requirements and questions carefully to determine if you are qualified BEFORE applying. If a scholarship is not yet available, check with the campus office administering the scholarship to ask when the scholarship will be available to apply-to.

The General Application you completed will be kept until July of each year. You must complete and sign a new General Application at the beginning of the Fall semester.
