Scholarships and Financial Aid

There are many competitive scholarships available for College of Education students. Scholarship applications are reviewed by the COE Student Development Committee which selects the recipients for the scholarships or, if required by the criteria for the scholarships, applications of eligible students are sent to the scholarship donor to make the final selection.

General Scholarships include on-campus scholarships and off-campus scholarships. There are over 40 general scholarships available to be awarded to students in our programs. Information on General Scholarships is available online.

Academic Affairs has set an ambitious goal to award and disburse as many Cal State LA scholarships as possible before the start of the fall semester!  This will provide our talented students with needed funds before classes begin.  It will also allow us to thank our donors in a timely manner and encourage them to continue to support our deserving students and programs.
Cal State LA has over 400 scholarship opportunities to support the educational goals of our students.  You can browse the diversity of scholarships available on our Cal State LA Scholarships Application site.  The scholarships are made available through the generosity of our University donors, alumni, and friends.  And remember, these scholarship opportunities are in addition to the various federal, state, and outside agency financial aid programs!
