Department Contact:

Financial aid for students is becoming more important for students, and the Department appreciates the generosity of our alumni and friends that make these scholarships possible.

The Department of Health and Nutritional Sciences uses the general online scholarship application form that can be found at MyState.

How to Apply

To be considered for most SDSU scholarships, including the Jackrabbit Guarantee, admitted first-year students must complete the Freshman Academic Scholarship Application. Along with the application, students should submit a recommendation letter and personal statement.

Students currently enrolled at SDSU should check MyState for scholarship updates.
Priority is given to applications received on or before January 15.
