When to Apply for SDSU Scholarships
When is the earliest I can I apply for an SDSU scholarship?
You can apply for an SDSU scholarship once you have your Red ID (your student identification number). You receive a Red ID number within 5 days after you complete your application for admission. Important: You must be admitted and enrolled to receive the scholarship funds.
Application cycles and deadlines
The majority of SDSU scholarships available through the Scholarship Search begin accepting applications in August. The search and application process is available all year with various deadlines depending on the major and the academic year for which the scholarship will be awarded. You may apply at any time, as long as your application is received by the scholarship's due date.
