Weber Honors College scholarships are highly competitive given the outstanding caliber of our applicants.

In order to be considered for the greatest number of Weber Honors College scholarships available, we encourage all students to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1.

 

In addition to the scholarships offered through the Weber Honors College, there are additional scholarships offered to all incoming students through the university’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.

 

Incoming students can start applying for SDSU scholarships to fund their 2017-2018 academic year.  You can apply for the scholarships once you have your RED ID number, which you will receive within five days of completing your application for admission to SDSU (CSUMentor application).

 

There are two deadlines for SDSU scholarships.  Most of the scholarships are due by 3pm PST on Friday, February 10, 2017.  The second deadline is 3pm PST on Friday, May 12, 2017.

Levi Lentz, 2012 Honors Graduate

 

Levi Lentz
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Honors paralleled my engineering studies nicely by providing a human element often missing from the rigors of mathematical modeling. Overall, this program is the main reason I enjoyed so much success at San Diego State by teaching me the necessity of working with people from all backgrounds. I was able to leverage my experiences in Honors and continue my studies in graduate school at MIT.
