Applying for scholarships

ASU’s New American University merit-based scholarship is awarded to a limited number of qualified international undergraduate students who demonstrate high academic achievement.

College and departmental scholarships

The academic departments and colleges at ASU also offer scholarships and assistantships. Award amounts and criteria vary.

"It was always my dream to be a civil engineer but my family was not able to fund me through college. I was fortunate enough to not only get an admission to ASU but also a scholarship through the Mastercard Foundation. ASU gave me a chance to be who I want to be, a civil engineer. I am forever thankful."
