The Angelo State Engineering Scholars (ASES) program breaks down financial barriers and provides support and a smooth transition into the engineering field.
Through ASES, first-time students can earn up to $10,000 per year for up to four years, and transfer students can earn that amount for up to two and a half years, helping you graduate with your civil or mechanical engineering degree on time with as little debt as possible. Scholarship amounts will vary based on need.
Eight to 10 ASES scholarships are awarded every year to engineering students - approximately half for first-time students and half for transfer students.
What are the Benefits of Being in ASES?
ASES not only awards scholarships, it also provides career mentoring and STEM support.
In this program, you’ll be able to:
- Build your community with other students in the ASES program and take common engineering, math and science courses together during your first year.
- Engage with ASU faculty and professional engineers as you receive academic and social support in our Mentoring Familias.
- Work in our state-of-the-art engineering labs, preparing to become a practice-ready engineer.
- Participate in internships and research opportunities.
- Access academic services including tutoring and supplemental instruction.
- Learn from professional, highly experienced faculty.
If you are accepted into the program, you will be expected to participate in mandatory events and meet certain scholarship requirements throughout the duration of your scholarship.
