Honors Scholarships

For incoming SDSU Honors Freshmen

Students who are admitted into SDSU and into the Weber Honors College can apply for Honors Scholarships via the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships (OFAS) once they have submitted their intent to enroll to SDSU and the Weber Honors College, and activated their SDSU ID. Students who do not submit their intent to enroll to both SDSU and to the Weber Honors College (these are two separate processes) will not be able to apply for honors scholarships. The deadline to submit both the SDSU and the Weber Honors College intents is May 1, 2022. The scholarship application will open in March 2022.  

We encourage all students to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as well. The FAFSA application for 2022-2023 funding is available starting October 1, 2021.

Please note, there are certain honors scholarships that have gpa requirements. Courses taken at a community college are factored into the student's overall gpa when we consider students for scholarships. If a student enrolls in a community college course in the fall, spring, or summer semester before starting SDSU, the grades received during the fall, spring, or summer term will also effect whether or not the student is eligible for the SDSU scholarship.
