SSS Grant Award

Each year, Student Support Services selects participants to receive a grant award up to $700 during their first year at Cal Poly. The award amount varies depending on a number of factors, including the "Unmet Need" in the applicant's financial aid package as well as the amount of loans a student may have been offered.

To be eligible for an SSS scholarship, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Current SSS student
  • An SSS participant for at least one quarter prior to applying for a scholarship
  • Full-time student, 12 units per quarter
  • Good academic standing (2.6 and over) in the quarter
  • Good program standing (2 appointments with SSS Advisor/Peer Mentor)
  • Eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant
  • Have a minimum unmet need of $1,000
  • Attend 4-6 SSS workshops, special events, and/or Student Academic Services events as recommended by SSS staff

Applications for the 2016-2017 Grant Award will be available to eligible students after program selection.
