Graduate Student Financial Assistance

ASU offers several financial assistance options for graduate students. In addition to information about the popular Carr Graduate Scholarships, the Financial Aid Office has details about other scholarships, fellowships, grants and assistantships available.

  Out-of-State Tuition Waivers

Carr Graduate Scholarships and/or other competitive scholarships of $1,000 or more that are awarded to full-time out-of-state and international students will normally qualify such students to pay the tuition and fees required of Texas residents.

In addition to the Carr Graduate Scholarships, the university has available for graduate students both tuition scholarships and tuition and fee scholarships. They are made available on the basis of academic ability and financial need, and are awarded by the university Financial Aid Committee. Only graduate students who plan to carry at least nine semester hours are eligible. Scholarships are awarded for one academic year with the provision that the recipient meets the academic standards established for such scholarships. To have the scholarship renewed for a second academic year, students must reapply.
