About the Obama Scholarship ASU

President Barack Obama exemplifies high academic attainment, intellect, a lengthy history of devotion to others, inspirational leadership, and a dedication to strengthening communities around the country.

Arizona State University is committed to providing opportunities for ambitious, high-achieving Arizona students who face financial constraints in pursuing higher education.


Obama Scholarship ASU Eligibility

Eligibility for the Obama Scholarship at Arizona State University: To qualify for the Barack Obama Scholars Program, you must be:

  • An Arizona resident. This covers Native American high school seniors who do not live in Arizona but fulfil the Arizona residency requirements for tuition at ASU.
  • A full-time first-year student starting in the fall.
  • Admitted to ASU in the fall for a degree program.

In addition, eligible students must:

  • Meet all course competencies and one aptitude criteria for first-year admission.
  • After graduating from an Arizona high school, enrol in ASU’s autumn semester immediately. If you do not enrol at ASU in the fall, you will forfeit your eligibility for future participation in this program.
  • Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with a total yearly family income of $42,400 or less.
  • Be qualified for a Federal Pell Grant.

Other important information:

  • Full-time, on-campus students enrolled in iCourses and ASU Sync are eligible for the ASU Obama Scholarship.
  • ASU’s online degree programs are not eligible. If you change your major to ASU Online, you will be withdrawn from the Obama Scholars Program and your financial assistance will be adjusted accordingly.
  • There is no further application for this program. Students who file their FAFSA and have a complete ASU admission application (application, transcripts, and application fee) before the deadlines listed below will be automatically evaluated.
