SDSU Scholarships

Students can submit one application through the “Aztec Scholarships” application platform to be considered for multiple university scholarships.

About  the SDSU Scholarships

The application and awarding procedures for SDSU scholarships are coordinated by the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships in collaboration with core committees from the different colleges, departments, and organizations that choose beneficiaries.

Student applications are processed quickly and simply. Aztec Scholarships automatically selects eligible applications and forwards them to the SDSU scholarship committees for award consideration based on university and applicant data.

University faculty and/or personnel from the academic program or campus group most directly associated with the scholarship make up the majority of scholarship committees.

Staff personnel from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships are not included on any scholarship committees.

In the management and awarding of scholarships, SDSU upholds a strict policy of non-discrimination on the grounds of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sexual orientation, sex, gender identification, gender expression, marital status, disability, medical condition, genetic information, age, veteran status, or any other protected characteristic.
