ASUMH Scholarship Information

ASUMH Scholarship Information Background Pic

How to Qualify

ASUMH does not require a scholarship application.  All students become eligible for scholarships by completing the ASUMH admissions process and providing all necessary documentation for admissions as early as possible.  All ASUMH insititutional scholarships give priority to applications completed by our Early Application Deadline.


No additional application is required for consideration.  However, some scholarships will require additional document submissions.  Students receiving communications requesting additional documents indicates you are being considered for a scholarship which has additional criteria to be met.  Provide the additional documentation quickly as timing may be a factor in scholarship awarding decisions.

Early Application Deadline

The Early Application Deadline to complete the admissions application process is March 15th each year for the upcoming Fall semester.


Some Health Sciences programs have different application deadlines throughout the year.  Deadlines for scholarships in these programs coincide with the application deadlines laid out by the program.


Applications received after the Early Application Deadline may receive consideration for scholarship if no candidate that meets the Early Application Deadline is deemed to qualify.


Additional Documentation


Individual Scholarships may require additional documentation.  Students may receive communications for additional document requests after applying for admissions.  If requested, provide the additional documentation as quickly as possible. Timeliness of your response can be a factor in scholarship awarding decisions.
