National Alumni Association Scholarship Programs
The Albany State University National Alumni Association, Inc. (ASUNAA) established the ASUNAA Scholarship Award Program to recognize, encourage and reward undergraduate students who: are in good academic standing at Albany State University. Students must demonstrate a financial need; have a record of leadership in school and in the community; have the potential to become active alumni who will support Albany State University (ASU) and ASUNAA; and, contribute to their communities.
The ASUNAA has awarded scholarships to several students since its inception as an Association. In keeping with its tradition of assisting students and in response to the significant financial hardship many students will encounter as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ASUNAA Board of Directors is proud to offer financial assistance to students enrolled at ASU. Two (2) scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each are available for students to apply. They are:
