New Carr Scholarship to Cover Full Cost to ASU
October 05, 2012
Five students will be accepted for the prestigious new ASU scholarship, which will provide $15,000 per academic year, beginning next fall. The scholarship, announced by Dr. Javier Flores, ASU vice president for student affairs and enrollment management, means that students earning the award will have a full ride to cover the cost of their college education at Angelo State.
Flores said, “This will be the most prestigious scholarship offered by Angelo State University and will help bring further honor to the legacy of Robert and Nona Carr, who established the Carr Endowed Scholarships to benefit Angelo State University students.”
The Carr Distinguished Scholarship, which stands at the apex of a new Carr Scholarship pyramid designed to broaden the Carr resources available to future ASU students, will provide $15,000 annually, an amount that will cover full tuition, fees, room and board at Angelo State.
Qualifications for the Carr Distinguished Scholarship include a high school grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or above on a 4.0 scale, as well as a score of 32 or above on the ACT or 1400 or above on the SAT. High school transcript and entrance exam scores must be submitted to the ASU Office of Admissions. Eligible candidates will be invited to submit a Carr Scholarship Application that will be reviewed by a committee. Following the review, the committee will invite selected candidates for an expenses-paid trip to campus to interview for the final awards. Priority deadline to apply for the scholarship is Feb. 1.
