Welcome to Arkansas State University!

All students are eligible to apply for a variety of privately funded scholarships administered by Arkansas State University and the ASU Foundation Inc. Our office highly recommends that you complete this application and submit supporting documentation (resume, letter(s) of recommendation, essay, etc) to strengthen your application.

Scholarships are for full-time students and require evidence of scholastic achievement and/or outstanding ability in the area of the award. Scholarships vary in amounts and duration of award. All privately funded scholarship awards are for ASU-Jonesboro campus only.


The 16-17 Privately Funded Scholarship application has expired. The deadline was February 1, 2016 5:00 CST. Please note that applications submitted by the February 1st deadline are valid for the entire 16-17 award year. Students are notified by mail if they are selected for one of the many scholarships available. Students are encouraged to apply each year in December so that they will be considered for all Privately Funded Scholarships each academic year.
