SCHOLARSHIP & FINANCIAL AID AWARD
The Metro Atlanta Chapter’s Scholarship/Financial Aid Award Program is designed to provide financial awards to applicable high school seniors or undergraduate students from the Atlanta Metropolitan area matriculating at Alabama State University (ASU). The chapter’s major focus will be on attracting/recruiting high school seniors to ASU. In some critical instances the chapter will support a graduating senior.
The financial award shall be a minimum of $500 per student. Additional funds may be available depending on a needs assessment and the availability of funds as determined by the Awards Committee and approved by the body.
Due to the demand for scholarships, all applicants must complete the application process and be graded based on the scholarship criteria. There shall be no special consideration given to students of chapter members/relatives. The financial awards shall be determined on one or more of the following:
Need (students who are academically qualified to attend ASU and need financial support)
Recruitment (students who are being considered because of high profile, high academic standards, leadership qualities and
who would be an asset to ASU)
ASU Program Project (band, student abroad program, etc.)
Funds (availability of funds)
GPA – 3.0 ACT -18 or SAT- 950
