Featured Scholarship: Home Away From Home

It’s scholarship season, which means there are hundreds of opportunities for San Diego State University students to prepare—at least financially—for next year. Whether you’re an undeclared freshman or a graduate anthropology student, chances are there’s at least one, if not 20, scholarships that fit your student profile.

Each month leading up to the winter and spring application deadlines, @State will feature a scholarship from SDSU’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships online database. Apply for as many as you qualify for—it’s free, it’s easy, it’s online!
