Hi Kaitlyn,

ASU alum here. The real large scholarships ("New American University Scholarships") are based only on your test scores and GPA and you will be considered for them automatically when you apply. The most competitive of these approach full-tuition (with lower levels in between) and the requirements for them change every year based on the applicant pool.

For other scholarships the link posted by Jake above is a good start, but don't rely on these for the bulk of your funding - for the most part they're relatively small with lots of people applying to each.

Hi Kaitlyn

Its great you have identified ASU as your chosen college and thinking about getting scholarships.

Scholarships are available from a variety of sources, in addition to the college where you are applying.

For a start, ASU has these scholarships available that you can go through and filter based on the specific requirements:

https://scholarships.asu.edu/scholarship-search

In addition, you may be able to take advantage of other (non-college specific) scholarships too based on qualifying conditions: Check out this list in the following link

As a matter of caution, you need to be disciplined about screening the scholarship list for qualifying criteria as well as due diligence about legitimacy. If any scholarship appears too good to be true and they are asking for any upfront fees or deposit, its probably not legit. There are lots of scammers out there that you need to watch out for. Check this link for some useful information on scholarship scams.

Hope this information helps you.
Good luck and best wishes for your journey through college to achieve your dreams.
