Scholarships for International Students

The Financial Aid & Scholarship Office at San José State University provides scholarship availability to international students. International students will only be eligible for those scholarships that are merit-based. Need-based scholarships are part of Financial Aid, which is unavailable to international students.

Fellowships and scholarships are offered by organizations or agencies, other than SJSU, such as churches or fraternal organizations. You also may be eligible for student assistant jobs and scholarships offered by your major department.

We recommend that you visit these on-line resources to research potential scholarship opportunities:

  • IEFA: Resource for financial aid, scholarship and grant information
  • FastWeb: Scholarship search engine

Remember, when searching for financial assistance such as scholarships, you should not pay any money. The websites listed above are legitimate and offer free assistance in searching.
