Admitted undergraduate students have the opportunity to apply for merit-based scholarships offered through the Alcorn State University Foundation, Inc. The Foundation administers both endowed scholarships and expendable scholarships, or those that must be replenished with funds from the donating individual or entity. The majority of scholarships available are in the form of endowed scholarships or those that are invested and funds awarded based on available interest. Endowed scholarships are mostly established by alumni, former university faculty and staff or family and friends in memory of beloved Alcornites who value the opportunities of an Alcorn education. Most scholarships offered by the Foundation Require a Minimum 2.0 GPA or Above.
Students are able to apply during the two (2) application periods - PHASE I Late Spring (mid-March through mid-May) and PHASE II Early Fall (late August). After applications are received, they are evaluated and decisions made by the university's foundation scholarship committee and staff. If selected, PHASE II Scholarship Recipients will be notified in writing and requested to either submit their own typed and signed Thank You Letter to the Foundation and/or schedule an appointment for a "Thank You Letter Writing Session" with the ASU Writing Center in the J.D. Boyd Library at their earliest opportunity.
ASU Foundation scholarship recipients, not only receive financial assistance to defray the cost of an education but they also become one of Alcorn's ambassadors of excellence.
Students must adhere to the following:
Must have an ACT score of 18 or higher
Must have a GPA of 2.75 or higher
