Student shaking hands while receiving a scholarship

With an average of sixteen scholarships and awards, the department awards over $13,000 annually to approximately twenty students. The awards are funded by alumni and friends of the department. Such awards recognize scholarship, creativity, and achievement in writing.

For more information on scholarships and awards as well as how to apply for them, please go to MyState. The SDSU Scholarship Application is available mid-December through mid-February (for scholarships and awards to be applied to the upcoming academic year). 

Admitted first year students should also investigate scholarship opportunities at the college level.
