Funding for Admitted Students

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:


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 here and scroll to "Opportunities Based on Your Search" at the bottom of the page.                                                      
  • Admitted graduate students who are California residents, including AB540/undocumented students, from educationally or economically disadvantaged backgrounds and with outstanding academic records, will be especially interested in the Graduate Equity Fellowship

  • Incoming graduate students may wish to review the Graduate Assistant and Graduate Teaching Associate employment opportunities available on the Division of Graduate Studies' Funding & Fellowships 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.
