APS Scholarship for ASU Students

Deadline: Wednesday, March 1, 2020



These scholarships are available to eligible ASU students majoring in select engineering, information technology or business fields of study. In 1988, we donated a piece of land to ASU, and in return, ASU established an endowment for APS that would produce an annual payout sufficient to cover 10 scholarships of $2,000 each. The application is open to all qualifying ASU students; however; each year, two of the scholarships are reserved for APS dependents.
