There are many scholarships made available by private donations. The dollar value of each scholarship varies, as do the requirements for each scholarship, which are based on the criteria established by the donor of the scholarship. They may be awarded based on merit, financial need and/or specific academic criteria. Unlike loans, awards and scholarships do not have to be repaid.
If wishing to contribute to the College of Health Solutions scholarships and fellowships, please visit Invest in Health
Many of the portal applications open in November each year.
The process for applying for scholarships is an online process. Please visit the new ASU Scholarship Application Portal to search for and submit 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 scholarship application deadlines are February and March each year; however, it’s important that you review deadlines carefully as they do vary. Scholarship award recipients will be notified in May via ASU e-mail.

The program is designed to help students who both want to carry out scholarly work under the tutelage of a faculty member and are required to earn money to address their financial need (such need is measured by whether the student is eligible to receive financial aid, which is separate from merit aid). All funding is for hourly work. None is available for equipment, supplies, or travel.
