Financial Aid: Scholarships

What are Scholarships?

Scholarships provide funding to students for educational expenses and do not require repayment. Scholarships can be provided by various sources, such as: the government; your community; your employer; schools; corporations.

Armstrong Scholarship Information

Thanks to the generous support of our alumni and donors, there are over two hundred scholarship funds available to Armstrong students!  These scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit, need or both. Scholarship committees at either the university, college or department/program level are responsible for awarding these funds. 

When reviewing applications, the scholarship committee considers many factors: academic achievements and GPA; unmet financial need; community service; leadership experience; extracurricular activities. 

Scholarship opportunities for new students are awarded by the Office of Admissions. New students are not required to submit the 'Armstrong Scholarship Application' in order to be eligible for these scholarship awards. The Office of Admissions makes scholarship award decisions based on incoming students' application for admission.  

Returning students must complete an Armstrong Scholarship Application in order to be eligible for the vast majority of scholarship funds. 

Third Party Scholarships

If you receive a scholarship from an outside donor such as a church, high school, or employer, please submit the scholarship information and the check to the Bursar's Office in Victor Hall (Suite 236). You may be required to endorse the check. The Office of Financial Aid will apply the scholarship funds to your award package once the check has been received by the Bursar's Office.

Avoid Scholarship Scams

There is no guaranteed method for recognizing scholarship scams, but some warning signs include: assurance of winning; implying that anyone is eligible; requiring payment up-front. Watch out for the following well-known scams:

The Free Seminar. A letter invites you to an interview or free seminar at a nearby hotel, activity center or even a school. These seminars are usually sales pitches for financial aid/scholarship consultants.
Ego Stroking. You receive an offer to see your name and achievements in print for a fee and to compete with others in the directory for scholarship awards. These scholarships typically only cover 5 - 10 percent of all entries.
Pay to Play. A letter indicates that you have already won a scholarship. However, it states that you have to mail in a "shipping and handling fee" or pay taxes on the award up-front.
Notification by Phone. All scholarship organizations notify winners by writing. Even calls from organizations by a scholarship sponsor are followed with written notification.
Time Pressure. Be wary of phrases such as "first-come, first-served" or others that pressure you to make a decision in a short time frame.
The Name Game. This scam uses similar or official sounding names by using words like national, federation, administration, or bureau (for example, the National Federation of Education, the Bureau of Educational Administration, or State Scholarship Federation).
No Phone Number. Legitimate organizations and foundations always give a phone number on scholarship application materials.
False Sponsorship. The Better Business Bureau and federal agencies do not endorse private enterprises.
Personal Information Requests. Do not give out your bank account number, credit card number, or Social Security Number. None of these are needed to process or award private scholarships.
Application Fees. Most scholarship foundations are non-profit organizations and cannot charge an application fee.
