Appalachian State University is considered one of the best institutions in the Southeast and consistently ranks in Forbes' and Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine best values lists. We are proud to give our students the opportunity to receive a world-class education at such an affordable rate; however we understand that cost can still be a factor. Because of this we have set aside $2.5 million each year for scholarships. Scholarship opportunities are available to incoming, current, and graduate students. While each opportunity is extremely competitive, as less than 1 percent of the total population receives a scholarship, we encourage all eligible students to apply. To learn more about our scholarship opportunities and our scholarship programs, follow the link that would best suits your needs.
Students currently attending Appalachian State University are encouraged to reach out to departments for awards and scholarship opportunities provided by the college in which they have declared a major.
There are many great resources available for both incoming and current students other than University Scholarships. We gladly advertise any outside scholarship opportunities that have been brought to our attention by credible sources, but these do not begin to cover the numerous opportunities that are available for all student types. We also encourage students to reach out to community organizations such as churches, clubs, local businesses, etc. to find all available awards.
The Office of Scholarships is constantly working to keep students updated on all available University Scholarships. We would like to remind you that this is not a comprehensive list of all scholarships at Appalachian State University, only those that will be awarded to students in the upcoming year.
