What to know about scholarships:

  1. General scholarship application deadlines are normally around May of every year for the next academic year. Students are encouraged to start applying early February or as soon as the scholarship application is available. As soon as students know they want to apply for scholarships, they are encouraged to start asking professors for recommendation letters.
  2. Students are encouraged to inquire with their major department to see if there are any scholarships being offered through them. Sometimes major departments have their own scholarships or know of some off campus scholarships that students can apply for.
  3. The key to success with scholarships is to always ask about them!

Cal State LA has students from may diverse backgrounds and we strongly encourage our students to apply for  scholarships in addition to Financial Aid grants and loans.
