Welcome to the San Jose State University Scholarship website!

Please note:

The SJSU Scholarship Application, Spartan Scholarship, is CLOSED for all students.

We are currently reviewing scholarship applications submitted for the 16-17 year. Students who are selected for a scholarship award will be notified via email.

Be advised if you submit an application after the deadline, your application will not be reviewed.

We encourage all students to apply for External scholarship opportunities offered by private organizations outside of SJSU.

Please check back again in January to apply for 2017-18 SJSU scholarships.
