ASU Distinguished Graduate Scholarships and/or other competitive scholarships of $1,000 or more, which 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.

Other Scholarships offered at ASU

In addition to the ASU Distinguished Graduate Scholarship, the university has available both tuition scholarships and tuition-and-fee scholarships for which graduate students are eligible. 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 credit hours are eligible. Scholarships are awarded for one academic year with the provision that the recipient meet the academic standards established for such scholarships. In order to have the scholarship renewed for a second academic year, the student must reapply.
