About National Scholarships & Fellowships
National Scholarships & Fellowships administers a number of competitive scholarship and fellowship opportunities available to first-year student applicants up to graduating seniors and recent alumni. These are external funding opportunities administered by outside institutions, organizations, or foundations. These awards fund domestic or international graduate study, undergraduate research, service, civic engagement or leadership development. Housed in the Division of Academic Engagement & Student Achievement at San Diego State University, our team manages the endorsement process for the Goldwater, Udall, and the Truman Scholarships, as well as International Fellowship opportunities such as the US-UK Fulbright Summer Institutes, Mitchell, Marshall, Rhodes, and the Schwarzman Scholarships. The endorsement process involves a campus process in which SDSU student applications and their recommendation letters are reviewed by a committee and selected candidates are chosen to represent SDSU in the national or international competition.
