Scholarship Program

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

We love to invest in the next generation

Every day, we at ASUS rely on incredible technological breakthroughs and procedures to achieve our goals.  We are grateful for the innovators who developed these resources, and in return we want to lend a hand in developing the education of the innovators and leaders of tomorrow.

To that end, ASUS has established a scholarship program to assist the children of active, full-time U.S. Military members and honorably discharged veterans at the bases we serve. Our scholarships are awarded to current high school seniors or graduates, or undergraduate students who plan to continue their education in a variety of fields, including environmental science and engineering; biology and chemistry; medical and mathematical sciences; business management; and technology. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

The program is administered by Scholarship Management Services, a division of Scholarship America, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and tuition-reimbursement programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
