Animal Science scholarships

Over $100,000 in scholarships are awarded by the Department to Animal Science majors each year! Scholarships are awarded to Jackrabbit Guarantee recipients, judging team members, and many other top students. Scholarships are an integral part of SDSU Animal Science. The Department appreciates the generosity of the organizations and individuals, as well as their families and friends that make scholarships available. 

The Animal Science Department uses the general online scholarship application form that the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences uses. The form can be found at MyState.

Please follow the directions below to apply for Department scholarships:

  1. If you are a recipient of a Jackrabbit Guarantee, you are required to fill out the application to be eligible to receive your Jackrabbit Guarantee.
  2. On your application, please describe experiences you may have had with various species of livestock. Also indicate your career interest in a specific discipline, such as nutrition, genetics, reproduction, natural resource management, and so forth.
  3. Note: Incoming freshmen will need to complete the general SDSU scholarship application, not this form. The general application may be obtained from the SDSU Admissions Office, 605-688-4121, or the SDSU Financial Aid Office, 605-688-4695.


An additional opportunity in the Animal Science Department is the Embry and Klosterman Work Assistance Program. Similar to a work-study position, these funds are provided to pays students working in a laboratory or livestock unit on campus.

  • Applications are available at the Department of Animal Science front desk in September.
