The Fellowships Office does not work with students until they are officially enrolled at San Francisco State. Once you have settled in to your first or second semester at the University, feel free to make an appointment with Dr. Viveros, SF State's Fellowship Advisor.
Incoming S.F. State graduate students should note that they may be eligible to apply for the following fellowships:
Students in the sciences or social sciences may be eligible to apply for a National Science Foundation – Graduate Research Fellowship
Admitted graduate students who are California residents, from educationally or economically disadvantaged backgrounds and with outstanding academic records, will be especially interested in the Graduate Equity Fellowship.
The Fellowships Office maintains a select list of scholarship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. These scholarships have been selected for one of the folowing reasons: (1) they support a constituency not often identified for support by other scholarships (i.e., student parents), (2) they are prestigious and would enhance your resume or CV, or (3) they offer significant funding.
The University's Office of Financial Aid's Scholarships website lists scholarship opportunities by year in school. Its "Quick Search" scholarship list identifies scholarships for which high school students, transfer students, freshmen, graduate students, and international students are eligible to apply. For scholarships administered by SF State, navigate to the Academic Works Scholarships page.
- For scholarships by identity, national deadline and year in school, see also U.C. Berkeley's Scholarship Connection.
Incoming graduate students should review the opportunities available on the Division of Graduate Studies' Financing Your Education page.

- "Dreamers"/AB540 and other undocumented students will want to begin by reviewing the CSU's Resources of Undocumented Students. From there, a strong resource is Educators for Fair Consideration's Quick Guide to College Access for Undocumented Students in California, as well as its Scholarship Lists for undergraduate and graduate students. Take note of California's SB68 expanded in-state tuititon opportunities for undocumented students. See also E4FC's New American Scholars Program, which provides financial awards and support services to low-income immigrant undergraduate and graduate students who live or attend school in the San Francisco Bay Area
- Michigan State University Library maintains a database of Undergraduate Scholarships and Loans and Graduate Scholarships, Fellowships, and Loans. Many of the opportunities are specifically for Michigan area students, but quite a few are available to students attending colleges or universities anywhere in the U.S.
