Applying for scholarships

Although international students do not qualify for federal and state financial aid (unless you are an eligible noncitizen), there are still options to help fund your ASU education. ASU’s New American University merit-based scholarship is awarded to a limited number of qualified international undergraduate students who demonstrate high academic achievement.

New American University (NAMU) Scholarship

ASU offers merit-based scholarships to international students who demonstrate high academic achievement. International first-year and transfer F-1 students may be considered for the New American University Scholarship, which helps with college expenses.

College and departmental scholarships

The academic departments and colleges at ASU also offer scholarships and assistantships. Award amounts and criteria vary. College scholarships are typically available to any student within that college who meets the scholarship criteria, while departmental scholarships are awarded to students majoring in particular disciplines.

Financial aid for students regardless of immigration status

Private scholarships that do not specify U.S. citizenship or lawful presence in the scholarship eligibility criteria, or that do not require a Social Security number for the application, may be available to students regardless of their immigration status. Review each scholarship opportunity to understand eligibility requirements.

Civil engineering major from Africa

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.
