Scholarship Description

The Financial Aid and Scholarship Office administers three types of scholarships:

  1. SJSU campus scholarships
  2. Department scholarships
  3. Private scholarships

Students should apply for as many scholarships as possible to lessen the need for loans or part-time work to attend school.

Department Scholarships

Various academic departments on campus manage their own scholarships. Students are strongly encouraged to keep in close contact with their major department for scholarship information. These scholarships each have their own specific criteria, deadlines, and application instructions. Students should contact their department directly for additional information.

Private Scholarships

Scholarships come from a number of different sources. It can take some time and effort on your behalf to research them all. There are businesses that offer to do this work for you for a fee, but SJSU does not recommend these services. Scholarship Search
