Merit scholarships are an essential means of recruiting the most academically talented undergraduate students to ASU. These scholarships are awarded to the highest achieving incoming students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Students who are the first in their families with an opportunity to earn a college degree are twice as likely to leave school before their sophomore year, are more dependent on financial aid and are more likely to be employed while attending school. These scholarships support students by easing financial pressure, allowing first-generation students to focus on academics and participate in campus activities. One-third of the freshmen at ASU are first-generation college students.
Preparing for a global future is a vital part of today's undergraduate experience. These scholarships support students who enhance their education by exploring a country outside the United States. Students who have the opportunity to study abroad are more likely to appreciate and understand cultures and communities throughout the world.
Involving students in collaborative efforts with faculty is the No. 1 way to increase students' satisfaction with the college experience. These scholarships support students with opportunities for directed-research experiences, with encouragement and guidance from the college's faculty. Students are able to devote more time to their studies and discover if they have a passion for a specific area of research. This helps define what they may want to do in the future as a career or field of graduate study.
Most academic units in the college have less than $10,000 in scholarships each year to recognize deserving students. These scholarships support students in degree programs throughout the college. Support for existing scholarships help increase the annual scholarship amounts awarded to students. General scholarship support allows departments or schools to create merit- and need-based scholarships for undergraduate students.
