SDSU Scholarships

All San Diego State University students are encouraged to apply for the Associated Students Global Education (Study Abroad) Scholarship - a student activity fee supported scholarship - to help defray costs associated with an SDSU-approved international experience (study abroad, internship, research, etc).

Students apply through the Aztecs Abroad portal. This is a competitive scholarship, not an automatic travel grant.  Make use of the available funds!

Requirements and Key Info:
  • The scholarship is eligible to all class levels and all majors
  • Those who will graduate prior to the academic term in which they participate in a study abroad program are not eligible.
  • The scholarship is for matriculated students only, from both San Diego and Imperial Valley campuses.
  • To have a complete application, students must write an essay describing their study abroad program, how it will enhance their education, and advance their long-term goals.
  • Recipients must have at least a cumulative 2.50 minimum GPA.
  • Recipients may only receive the scholarship one time.
The scholarship is awarded based on program participation and is subject to cancellation if students postpone or withdraw from their travel plans.
