Determine Eligibility and Review Scholarship List
Before reviewing the ACIS Scholarship List, please read the following eligibility requirements. All ACIS students must:
- If you are applying for a need-based scholarship, have a 2019-2020 FASFA on file (with valid signatures) before submitting an online application. Applications with “incomplete” FAFSAs will not be considered. FAFSA information is available on the University Scholarships and Financial Aid website (International students will file an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) Calculator in lieu of a FAFSA with the same deadline.
- Consider the following:
a. Scholarship Criteria: Compare your qualifications with the criteria listed for each individual scholarship, and then select only the scholarships for which you meet the requirements. Students may and should apply for multiple scholarships.
b. Scholarship Type: All scholarships are awarded to the top candidates that meet the respective criteria (i.e., merit, preferences, need-based, etc.). Note that scholarships marked “need-based/FAFSA required” will be awarded ONLY to those students with documented financial-need, as determined by results of the 2019-2020 FAFSA (or EFC calculator for international students).
c. Student Class Level: To properly award scholarships, class level is determined by credits.
