University Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded on University, College, and Departmental levels. Because of our generous donors, the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences awards around $230,000 annually. When combined with the departments within the College, we offer well-over half-a-million dollars in scholarships to our students.

Returning students apply for scholarships by logging on to MyState. Click on the "My Money" tab, and then on the scholarship application link. All students, whether eligible for the Jackrabbit Guarantee Program or not, should submit this application in early February to be eligible for scholarships the following school year.

Incoming students should complete the SDSU Academic Scholarship Application Form the year prior to enrollment.
