The Fellowships Office also does not advise on scholarship searches. The following information is provided, however, to assist prospective students in their search for funding.

Incoming students seeking scholarships may wish to refer to the following resources:

  • 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: they support a constituency not often identified for support by other scholarships (i.e., student parents); they are prestigious and would enhance your resume or CV; or they offer significant funding. To review these opportunties, click the "Search for Fellowships" page. Please Note: Our website platform has changed, breaking some of the links: check back later for restored links.                                                      
  • Incoming graduate students may wish to review the Graduate Assistant and Graduate Teaching Associate employment opportunities available on the Division of Graduate Studies' Funding Your Education page.

  • The Office of Financial Aid's Academic Works Scholarships page lists scholarships administered by SF State. Click on the top right "Sign in" button to submit your student information and learn about scholarships for which you are eligibile.

  • UCLA's GRAPES is a database of scholarships, grants, fellowships, and postdoctoral awards, for applicants to any graduate program, graduate students working on a master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation, and postdoc scholars. Gradfellowships-L Subscription allows applicants to subscribe to emails about fellowship opportunities.
