Searching and applying for scholarships is largely a self-help process. This web site provides information and resources to assist students on how to begin their search for scholarship opportunities. Typically, the Spring semester is the most opportune time to begin searching and applying for scholarships for the next academic year.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

All financial aid recipients who are awarded scholarships are required to report other resources to the financial aid office. Scholarship awards must be coordinated with the student's financial aid package.

Fellowships Office

The services provided by the Fellowships Office are complementary to the scholarship services the Office of Student Financial Aid provides. The Fellowship Advisor provides assistance in applying for nationally competitive fellowships, as well as system-wide awards offered by CSU. Applicants to fellowship and scholarship programs that require institutional nomination must apply through the Fellowships Office. (See Resources section)
