ASU Foundation, Inc. Scholarships Phase II
Walk-In Gap Assistance
The Alcorn State University Foundation, Inc. offers students the opportunity to apply for scholarship funding assistance during our Phase II application period. This application phase is open for students who have an unmet financial need after all other aid has been applied or exhausted. Applicants should be mindful that scholarship awards are contingent on availability of funds, demonstrated financial need of applicants and academic merit; therefore, all applicants may not be awarded.
Incomplete scholarship applications will not be reviewed. Students should make sure their application and all required information is complete and submitted by the deadline. Completed scholarship applications must be submitted no later than the posted due date and students will not be notified of incomplete applications.
Every Foundation scholarship applicant is required to complete a FAFSA for the current year’s financial aid awards. The primary intent of the scholarship program of the ASU Foundation is to assist students with tuition, fees, and book expenses through need-based and merit-based scholarships. For this reason, all scholarship applicants are required to apply for financial aid. Financial aid awards, including other university and external aid, will be factored into the scholarship awards process.
ASU Foundation funded scholarships are to be used at Alcorn State University only and are not transferable to other institutions.
ASU Foundation scholarships are intended for approved educational related expenses only, as set forth in the respective scholarship guidelines and criteria. Any fraudulent use of scholarship funds or misrepresentation to gain reimbursement may result in the termination of scholarship funding and ineligibility to apply for future ASU Foundation funding opportunities.
The Phase II scholarship review process can take several days. All applicants will be notified by email/letter regarding their application status.
Explanation of Terms
For incoming students, the official GPA evaluated is the one from your most recent institution. For returning students, GPA will refer to your most recent cumulative GPA at Alcorn State University.
Scholarship requirements stating that a student must be “currently enrolled” at ASU means that the student must be currently enrolled in classes pursuing a full load of 15 credit hours. If a student is not enrolled in an ASU course at the time of the scholarship application, the application may not be reviewed.
The ASU Foundation annually awards scholarships funded by private donations. Scholarships are intended to assist students with the cost of attendance, as well as recognize academic performance, leadership qualities, University/community service and campus/community engagement. ASU Foundation scholarships are awarded annually on the basis of academic achievement, financial need, major of study and/or other specifications set by donors.

ASU Foundation scholarships are typically towards the payment of ASU tuition and fees. In some cases, the award may also be used for ASU Housing, ASU Dining, and required textbooks at the ASU Bookstore.
Foundation scholarship funds are nonrecurring meaning they do not rollover from year to year.
Students receiving University scholarships covering 100% of their ASU tuition and fees, room, board, and books are ineligible to receive ASU Foundation Scholarships.
