    Application

    Upon being accepted for admission to ASU, your high school transcripts and ACT/SAT scores will be evaluated to determine your Carr Scholarship eligibility. Once ASU establishes that you meet the criteria for the Carr Distinguished Scholarship, you will be sent a personal invitation to complete the online Carr Distinguished Scholarship Application. In addition to the online application, you will be asked to provide a résumé, cover letter, and two (2) academic letters of recommendation. Interviews for the Carr Distinguished Scholarship will be scheduled during ASU’s Carr Distinguished Scholars Event

    Deadline

    The Carr Distinguished Scholarship application packet deadline is Friday, January 11, 2019.  Qualified students who did not meet the deadline will be offered the Carr Excellence Scholarship.

    Notification

    You will be mailed notification if you have been selected for the Carr Distinguished Scholarship.

    Disbursements 

    Students must be enrolled full-time (12 semester credit hours) for the Carr Scholarship to disburse. 

    Repeated, developmental, and dual-credit coursework will not be counted toward your enrollment requirements for disbursement.

    Dropping Classes & Withdrawing

    Students who withdraw or drop below 12 credit hours on or before the university’s census date (12th class day of a regular semester) will have their scholarship disbursement canceled, which may create a balance due to the university.

    Students who withdraw may be required to reapply to the university. Students who have to reapply are no longer eligible for their Carr Scholarship. Students who decided to ‘sit out’ for a long semester (fall or spring) will have to reapply for the university making them ineligible for their Carr Scholarship.

    Renewal Requirements

    Carr Scholarships received as freshmen from high school have specific renewal requirements. Please review the Renewal Requirements page for more information about disbursements, dropping classes, renewal requirements, and reinstatement.
