A common misconception about scholarships is that they are only available for the smartest students with the highest GPAs. Now while it is true that many scholarships are merit-based, there are just as many that aren't. Many scholarships are awarded based on need, residency, ethnic background, major, and more. In fact, there are scholarships out there for just about every kind of student. Click on the headings below to learn more.
The APS is available to undergraduates including Canadian and international students. The Undergraduate Admissions Office will determine the scholarship amounts for incoming freshmen and transfer students.

- Confirmed U.S. cumulative GPA (following the conclusion of the sixth semester for academy or high school)
