The New American University Scholarship means more than assistance with financing your education, it includes a unique opportunity to begin making a difference while you earn your degree.
Arizona State University is committed to helping a greater number of academically qualified students graduate than ever. Our New American University Scholar awards are offered to outstanding incoming undergraduate students as they pursue academic excellence at ASU. Many of these scholarships are renewable. This program provides qualified students a monetary award and an environment focusing on knowledge, learning and research plus resources toward understanding and helping solve society’s most pressing challenges.

If you have not yet applied to ASU, submit an application for undergraduate admission and accompanying materials (official transcripts, test scores and application fee). Note that there are different priority dates for each scholarship.
Scholarship Renewal Criteria
