Sun Devil Family Association scholarships

As part of its commitment to support student success, the SDFA administers a scholarship program for deserving students. Through the generous support of families like yours, the SDFA is able to award multiple scholarships of $5,000 each academic year. These scholarships — awarded to individuals who demonstrate financial need, a record of community service and a commitment to their education despite challenging circumstances — help scores of students pay for school each year. In- and out-of- state undergraduate students are eligible to apply. Additional scholarship information can be found at

The SDFA was able to aid 64 deserving students during the 2015–16 academic year, helping keep them on track and focused on academic success. However, the need is greater than ever as the SDFA received hundreds of qualified applications for these 64 scholarships.

Beyond relieving the financial burdens of college, these scholarships provide recipients with a support system from the SDFA, their fellow scholars and alums of the scholarship. Recipients discover a second family through community service activities and association sponsored social events. The benefits of investing in ASU students can be seen in SDFA Scholar Alums, graduates of the scholarship program, who are making a difference in their own communities and who have formed their own alumni chapters to give back to SDFA scholars through mentoring, networking and scholarship support.

You can help out future ASU students by supporting the Sun Devil Family Association Scholarship Fund.
