San Jose State University General Scholarships
Scholarships come from a number of different sources, including SJSU, private donors, alumni, and private industry. Awards are generally based on scholastic achievement and financial need. All students are encouraged to apply for as many scholarships as possible, to lessen their need for loans or part-time work to attend school.
Students who want to apply for SJSU scholarships for the upcoming academic year can do so online through the Spartan Scholarship Application.
To be eligible to apply, students must have at least 8 graduate or 12 undergraduate units completed at SJSU with a GPA of 3.0 or better. A few scholarships have a lower GPA requirement, and state the minimum criteria. The deadline to apply is April 15th for the upcoming fall and spring semesters. Students are encouraged to file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by March 2nd. Students can apply online at www.fafsa.gov.
