Our Opportunities

The 2019-20 SJSU Scholarship Application, Spartan Scholarship, is now available.

STEP 1: Complete and SUBMIT the General Application. You can edit or update your application up until 11:59pm on the stated scholarship deadlines.

STEP 2: After submitting the General Application, you will be presented with a list of “Recommended scholarship opportunities.” These scholarships may require additional information that is not included in the questions on the General Application. You are encouraged to click on each scholarship name to review the criteria. We encourage you to apply for all scholarships where you meet the additional requirements. (There are some scholarship opportunities you do not have to apply to, but will be automatically matched to after you complete your General Application.)
