The 2013/2014 scholarship application for Fresno State will be available online starting October 1, 2012. The "priority" application deadline is February 28, 2013. However, several scholarship opportunities will remain open beyond that deadline for specific majors, programs, or student groups. Therefore, we encourage all students to occasionally log-in to check their application status and to see if there are any new scholarship opportunities available.
Please note there are different deadline dates for the various scholarship opportunities offered at Fresno State. Since these deadline dates can change without notice, please do not procrastinate on finishing the application process.
In order to be considered for a Fresno State scholarship, students must be a continuing student or a new student who has applied for admission for the 2013/2014 academic year. Before you attempt to apply, please make sure you have received a Fresno State Student I.D. number and have activated your MyFresnoState account with a valid email address. All scholarship applicants will now use their MyFresnoState log-in user name and password to log into the scholarship application.
Please be prepared to provide two different personal statements. One statement is to give you an opportunity to tell us important things about yourself that are not addressed or apparent in the application. The second statement is regarding your career objectives. You may also be asked to upload letters of recommendation or other documents that are required. These documents must be uploaded to your online application prior to the deadline. All documents that are submitted become the property of Fresno State and will not be returned.
Notification of Awards
After the application deadline has closed, you will need to monitor your Fresno State email to see if you have been awarded a scholarship. The awarding of scholarships starts at the beginning of April and usually concludes by the end of August. If you are awarded a scholarship, a congratulatory email will be sent to you announcing the award. All scholarship awards are dedicated to students who are admitted and enrolled at Fresno State. Students who are receiving more than one award will receive more than one email and must follow the instructions in each email to accept their scholarship. Please be advised that all email communications regarding your scholarship award(s) will only be sent to your Fresno State email address.
