Scholarships and funding
Sources of funding
ASU, the Fulton Schools, and many sources outside of ASU offer scholarships and funding opportunities. Funding may be secured by applying for and receiving undergraduate scholarships, or by receiving a fellowship, assistantship or scholarship as a graduate student.
On this page you’ll find the connections you need to access the funding sources available to you. Discover scholarships and funding sources that are specific for bachelor’s degree students as well as master’s and PhD students.
Scholarships and funding sources are not just for “A” students — there are a variety of opportunities based on talent, personal stories, creativity, and more.
There are specific funding breaks for Arizona residents, military and veteran students, and so many more student groups.
Submit your FAFSA
For students who are U.S. citizens, completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is the first step towards applying for scholarships.
