Frequently Asked Questions

  • ASU Scholarships FAQ

    Q: I was completing a scholarship application on RAMS/RamPort and it “disappeared.” How can I get the application back on my list?

    A: This occurs when either the “submit” button or the “decline to answer” button is clicked. Please email scholarships@angelo.edu with your name, your ASU Campus ID number, and the name of the application you need to have reset. 

    Q: Upon reviewing the applications listed on RAMS/RamPort, I did not see a scholarship application for my major. How do I apply for departmental scholarships?

    A: The Scholarship Programs Office has collaborated with all of the Academic Departments. As long as you complete the General Scholarship Application on RAMS/RamPort, your information will be provided to your department for their review of your eligibility.

    Q: What is a priority deadline date?

    A: The priority deadline date is the date that applications will be presented to the various scholarship committees on campus to be reviewed.

    Q: Why is the priority review date March 15?

    A: In order to award scholarships as early as possible, the Scholarship Programs Office has aligned the priority review date to coincide with the State of Texas’ priority review deadline (Texas Grant, Top 10% Scholarship, etc.).

    Q: What happens if I complete the scholarship application after the priority review date? Does that mean I will not qualify?

    A: If you do not complete the application at all, there is a 100% chance you will not qualify. Completing the application before the priority review date increases your chances of being selected; all scholarships are awarded to the extent that funds are available.

    A: Scholarship Programs and Financial Aid will send emails to students notifying them of their awards.

    Q: If I am selected to receive a scholarship, do I have to write a Thank You card?
