Getting Started - Apply Once, Get Matched!

  • Institutional scholarship opportunities are available as early as October and running through March, each year.
  • Scholarships will be awarded the following Fall and Spring terms.
  • Since these deadline dates can change without notice, please do not procrastinate on finishing the application process early.

In order to be considered for scholarships, a student must be a continuing student or a new student who will be attending Sac State for the upcoming academic year. All scholarship applicants must use their MySacState log-in username and password to access the scholarship application.

Once you finish and submit the general scholarship application, you will be presented with recommended opportunities for which you might be eligible.  The recommended opportunities can be a combination of general scholarships (open to all students) and departmental scholarships (restricted to students within a specific major). You will receive an email for scholarship opportunities that may require additional questions to be answered and/or supplemental documentation to be uploaded.

All scholarship recipients will be notified of their award once the review and selection process is complete. You must accept (or decline) the scholarship award offer within two weeks from the date on the email. Students must submit a Thank You letter before receiving their disbursement.
