Welcome to the California State University, Los Angeles Scholarship website! Cal State LA has over 400 scholarship opportunities to support your educational goals. 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!

The scholarships listed on the scholarship site are Cal State L.A.’s Scholarships offered by various schools, departments, and offices throughout the University. Click on the scholarship name to learn more about that particular opportunity. Most Cal State L.A. scholarships are endowed, which means that only interest, drawn upon principal gifts, is awarded to students. Since interest rates vary and donations are received throughout the year, it is impossible to note how much each scholarship award will be. The range for Cal State L.A. scholarships is from $100 to $5,000, with the average award being around $700.
