Home / Student Services / Scholarships

Many scholarships have been made available to ASU and Health Solutions students thanks to private donors. The dollar value of each scholarship varies, as do the requirements for each scholarship, which are based on the criteria established by the donor. They may be awarded based on merit, financial need or specific academic criteria. 

Unlike loans, awards and scholarships do not have to be repaid.

Applying to scholarships

Visit the ASU Scholarship Application Portal to search for and submit scholarship applications. You will be asked to enter your personal information and it is suggested that you enter your College of Health Solutions major in the “major” search field to yield all results for scholarships for which you are eligible.

Students who complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be eligible for consideration for scholarships that require financial need.

Many of the applications available through the portal open in November each year.

Scholarship application deadlines are generally in February and March; however, it’s important that you review deadlines carefully, as they do vary. Scholarship award recipients will be notified in May via ASU email.
