Appalachian State University has a new, university-wide scholarship application and awarding system, bringing hopes to make easy the process of earning financial support.
Students can access the system at appstate.academicworks.com or under the student tab in AppalNet. The new system will auto-match student applications to scholarship opportunities based on information provided in the application, as well as information from Banner, the university's system of record. A committee will review appropriate applications and contact finalists by email.
Continuing undergraduate students and students in the Master of Science in Accounting program in the Walker College of Business are encouraged to apply now for 2021-2022 scholarships. Students will complete a general university scholarship application, and business majors will be invited to complete a short Walker College of Business application.
The scholarship application will remain open through February 15.
To increase your chances of being selected for a scholarship award, complete a FAFSA -- Free Application for Federal Student Aid -- as early as possible. A FAFSA is required to determine financial need, and many business scholarships at Appalachian have a need criterion. Students without a FAFSA on file will not be considered for need-based scholarships.
Study abroad scholarships, as well as MBA and Master of Science in Applied Data Analytics (MSADA) program scholarships require a separate process. Contact Meredith Pipes for information about study abroad scholarships. Contact Donna Lindabury for information about MBA and MSADA scholarships.
