SDSU Scholarships and Study Abroad

Q: Can I receive a SDSU scholarship while I am studying abroad?

A: Usually yes, but not all programs are eligible. The SDSU International Student Center can help you choose a study abroad program that is eligible for financial aid and scholarship consideration. You will still need to follow the same requirements and deadlines as students studying on campus.

All deadlines apply

The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will not grant extensions on deadlines just because you are studying abroad.

AidLink updates

Once you have submitted your application online and delivered or mailed all additional materials (if required) by the scholarship’s deadline, check your AidLink account frequently for updates regarding your scholarship application.

Thank you letter

If you receive a scholarship, you are still required to submit an online thank you letter by the deadline, whether before you leave or from your destination.
