As part of its commitment to supporting student success, the Sun Devil Family Association provides scholarship funding for many deserving students. Through the generous support of parents like you, the SDFA established a fund to make multiple awards of $4,000 each academic year. These scholarships — given to individuals who demonstrate financial need, a record of community service and a commitment to their education — help dozens of students pay for school each year. In- and out-of-state undergraduate students are eligible to apply.
The SDFA was able to award scholarships to 55 deserving students for the 2013–14 academic year. However, the need is greater than ever as the SDFA received hundreds of applications (many of whom qualified) for these 55 spots.
In addition to relieving the financial burdens of college, SDFA scholarships provide recipients with a support system from the SDFA and their fellow scholars and alumni of the scholarship. They discover a second family as part of the scholarship program through community service activities and association-sponsored social events. The benefits of investing in these ASU students will be felt by them, the SDFA and the community for years to come.
