ASU Foundation, Inc. Scholarships
Phase I Application Period is Now CLOSED.
All scholarship applicants will receive a notification by July 1, 2019.
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.
There are two application periods - PHASE I: Late Spring (March 15 - May 15, 2019) and PHASE II: Early Fall (late August). Students are strongly encouraged to apply during PHASE I: Late Spring. PHASE II applications are received on an availability-of-funds basis. After applications are received, they are evaluated and decisions made by the university's foundation scholarship committee and staff. If selected, PHASE I and 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.
President and Provost Scholarship recipients are not eligible to apply.
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.
Actual amounts available to be awarded depend on investment portfolio performance. Scholarship awards can usually range between a minimum of $250.00 up to a maximum of $3,500.00. Scholarships are awarded for one (1) academic year for both fall and spring semesters. One half of the total award is paid in the fall and the remaining half in the spring. A select number of scholarships are awarded for the summer sessions. There are a few recurring scholarships that are renewable from year-to-year based on students maintaining adherence to certain criteria, however the majority of scholarships are non-recurring.
