Fellowships Office Programs

The Fellowships Office provides resources and support to undergraduates, graduate students, and recent alumni interested in applying for nationally competitive and CSU fellowships and awards.





The Graduate Fellowships Hub offers the same resources as the Fellowships Office website, but relevant to graduate students only.






The California State University's California Pre-Doctoral Program offers mentoring and funding to undergraduate and graduate students interested in attaining a Ph.D. Funding may be used to visit graduate programs, attend professional conferences, and apply to Ph.D. programs. Pre-Doctoral Scholars may also apply for a fully-funded summer research experience with a top scholar in their field.

The California State University's Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) offers mentoring, funding for research and conferences to students entering Ph.D. programs, who want to teach in the CSU. CDIP Fellows are also eligible for low-interest, potentially forgivable, loans.



Search the Fellowships Database for fellowships, research experiences, artist residences, and selected scholarships and might be a good fit for you.



Fellowship programs that require students to apply through the campus will have campus deadlines that are earlier than the CSU or national deadline. Review Campus Deadlines to find out if your program requires you to apply through San Francisco State, and if so, by when.

Each semester the Fellowships Office offers information workshops on fellowship programs, including the California Pre-Doctoral Program and the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.



Each semester the Fellowships Office offers workshops on special topics in graduate level academic writing.
