Fresno State has hundreds of scholarship opportunities available. Most of the scholarships listed in this section only require you to complete our general scholarship application. However, some scholarships require additional information (those opportunities have a visible “Apply” button listed) from you to determine your eligibility. Please keep in mind this section lists all institutional scholarships available regardless if you are eligible or not.

After you complete the general scholarship application, you will be presented with “Recommended” opportunities for which you might be eligible. The recommend opportunities can be a combination of general scholarships (open to all students) and departmental scholarships (restricted to students within a specific major or field of study).
