What scholarships are available?

Many funding opportunities, including merit based as well as need based aid, are available for students in Barrett, The Honors College. Need based aid requires that a current FAFSA form be on file. FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Students are strongly encouraged to submit a FAFSA, even if they are unsure that need-based financial assistance will be available. Each year, the FAFSA opens on October 1. International students who are unable to file a FAFSA are asked to complete a budget form provided during the application process.

Financial support

For many students, barriers to academic success include barriers to financial support.  If you are a current student enrolled in Barrett at ASU and need financial assistance, the first step would be to meet with a financial aid counselor at ASU. 

If you have exhausted your options through ASU’s financial aid process and would like to talk to someone about further support, please contact Dr. Dawn Rendell, Assistant Dean of Students for Barrett at

ONSA information

Frank Office of National Scholarship Advisement helps students prepare to compete for national and international awards of merit. Other opportunities are offered as Barrett specific scholarships, grants and awards and are made possible by the gracious gifts of donors to the college.

Lorraine W. Frank Office of National Scholarships Advisement

The Lorraine W. Frank Office of National Scholarships Advisement (ONSA) helps students from all ASU's campuses prepare to compete for national and international scholarship and fellowship awards, including the Fulbright, Rhodes, Marshall, Truman, Goldwater, Udall, NSEP-Boren, and many more.  Arizona State University students have been awarded over 500 national awards worth millions of dollars in external funding, placing ASU among the top schools in the United States for success in national scholarship competitions.

Scholarship FAQs

All prospective students for the fall 2022 semester are encouraged to submit scholarship applications by the February 1 deadline. For the application to be considered, the student must be admitted to Barrett, The Honors College, by March 11, 2022. Prospective students should carefully review the Barrett admissions process to ensure they apply to the college early enough to receive an admission decision by 3/11/2022.

Eligibility requirements vary for individual scholarships; please see the list of specific Barrett scholarships to determine other eligibility requirements.

All scholarships are contingent on Barrett enrollment. Some of the awards are available to both incoming and continuing Barrett students, while others are specific to one group. Review the scholarship descriptions to confirm eligibility requirements.

The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  Merit scholarships at ASU – those based on an academic accomplishment like the popular New American University Scholarship program – do not require the submission of the FAFSA.  Need-based financial assistance requires the completion and submission of a FAFSA.  In instances where a scholarship or grant factors in both student merit and need, the FAFSA may be required.  Students are strongly encouraged, even if they are unsure that need-based financial assistance will be available, to submit a FAFSA.

The FAFSA is available each year on October 1. The ASU priority filing date is January 15. Students hoping to be considered for Barrett scholarships must have their FAFSA on file by February 1.

The majority of Barrett scholarships have a deadline of February 1st. Exceptions are the Beus Family New American University Scholarship, the Bidstrup Foundation Undergraduate Fellows Program, and the Jose Franco & Francisca Ocampo Quesada Research Award whose deadlines vary and are noted on this page and on the applications. 

Scholarship recipients will be notified of their awards via their ASU email by May 1st (due to the FAFSA delay). Please keep your email address up-to-date with the university through My ASU.

Your scholarship money will be deposited to your ASU student account approximately one week before classes begin in the fall. The funds will first be applied to any charges, such as tuition, that you owe ASU. If scholarship funds remain and you have set up direct deposit with ASU Student Accounts, the remainder of the money will be deposited into your bank account a few days before the beginning of the semester. If you do not have direct deposit set up with ASU and would like to set one up, you may enroll online through My ASU. Please sign up at least 15 days before the beginning of the semester to allow adequate processing time.

If you do not have direct deposit, any remaining scholarship funds will be mailed to the address you have provided ASU. Please be sure your correct local address is on file with ASU as Student Accounts will charge students a fee if checks need to be reissued. Once the scholarship funds have posted to your account, you can view the details via My ASU.

If you have further questions about the disbursement of your funds, please visit or call Student Accounts at 1-855-278-5080.

Unless noted otherwise, Barrett scholarships are not renewable. If you are a recipient of a renewable scholarship, and you have met the criteria of the Terms of Acceptance, your scholarship will be automatically renewed and post to your student account by August 1st.

Arizona State University offers a number of different scholarships.  Search for ASU scholarships, review resources for putting together scholarship applications, and learn more about the renewal criteria for ASU scholarships once awarded at

Besides scholarships, ASU offers options such as grants, student employment, and student loans.  To explore these options and see how other students fund their education, please visit this helpful ASU Financial Aid webpage
