Each year, Cronkite School awards its students more than $100,000 in scholarships in amounts ranging from $500 to $5,000.
These scholarships are possible due to generous donations from Cronkite alumni, local media companies and organizations, and other benefactors who wish to help deserving Cronkite students complete their education.
To apply for the Cronkite School Scholarship, complete the online application form, available after December 15. The application deadline is January 29th for awards for the upcoming academic year.
Scholarship Eligibility Requirements
• You must be a Cronkite School student;
• You must have completed at least 12 credit hours of academic coursework at ASU.
• Complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to qualify for need-based scholarships.
Applicants will receive confirmation via email by February 12 that their completed applications have been received.
Scholarship recipients will be notified by email by the end of the spring semester. The letter will be sent to the recipient’s address registered with ASU.
If you are an incoming first year student at a Cronkite School, you do not need to complete the online application to be eligible for a Cronkite Scholarship. Both merit-based assistance and Cronkite Scholarships will be considered based on your ASU request. However, Cronkite has only a limited number of scholarships available to first-year students; More is available through the Arizona State University Scholarships Office.
