There are many opportunities available for scholarships for all current and prospective students.  Scholarships are not always based upon financial aid, but rather on criteria such as major, academic excellence, and career plans.  Many scholarships often go unclaimed becuase people fail to apply for them.  We encourage you to apply for as many scholarships as possible. 

A number of scholarships are available to students in the Department of European Studies.The majority of SDSU scholarships are administered through the SDSU Financial Aid and Scholarships Office. Learn more about scholarships at SDSU.
