Outside Scholarships

Due to the competitive nature of Appalachian State University’s scholarship program, not all applicants for admission are eligible to apply for scholarships as a freshman. We hope this does not discourage any student from seeking awards for their academic achievements. 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.

Use the Outside Scholarship Request Form to submit your scholarship for listing on the Outside Scholarships page.

*If a student is awarded an outside scholarship he or she must report this to The Office of Financial Aid. The scholarship check should be made payable to Appalachian State University and should have the recipient's name and Banner ID in the "For" column of the check. Outside donors should mail scholarship checks to this address:
