The scholarship application period for Fresno State starts October 1, 2013. The "priority" application deadline is February 28, 2014. However, there may be scholarship opportunities open beyond the priority deadline for specific majors, programs, or student groups. Therefore, we encourage all students to occasionally log-in to check their application status for recommended scholarships to see if there are any new opportunities available.
This application period is for current year scholarship opportunities that may become available during the 2013/2014 academic year as well as for future scholarship opportunities for the 2014/2015 academic year.
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. If you are currently enrolled at Fresno State, it is highly recommended that you submit your scholarship application as soon as possible. This will allow you to be considered for current year opportunities that may become available.
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 2014/2015 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 scholarship deadline. All documents that are submitted become the property of Fresno State and will not be returned.
Honors Program - Scholarship Opportunities
The Smittcamp Family Honors College provides a rigorous yet friendly setting in which you can study with your intellectual peers in courses that match those offered at a small liberal arts college, while having access to the breadth of resources and extracurricular activities offered at a high quality, comprehensive university. Moreover, and perhaps the best part of it all, every Smittcamp student receives a President’s Honors Scholarship. This award is comparable to the value of in-state tuition and includes credit for a community style room in the on-campus residence halls.
To apply for the honors scholarship you must first complete the Fresno State General Scholarship Application. Once you complete the general scholarship application, you will be able to view and apply for the Smittcamp Family Honors College President’s Honors Scholarship opportunity. The scholarship requirements, program application, and application deadline will be visible under the “opportunities” directory.
