Alabama State University, a historically Black educational institution in Montgomery, has announced a new scholarship for current and new out-of-state students.
The President’s Promise Scholarships will award up to $8,300 per year to assist with tuition costs for the fall and spring semesters. The scholarships will be awarded to out-of-state undergraduate students who are seeking their first degree at Alabama State University.
This year, tuition for Alabama students was $11,068. Out-of-state tuition was $19,396. Thus, recipients of a full Presidential Promise Scholarship would be able to attend Alabama State at in-state tuition rates. To qualify, students must have a high school grade point average of 2.75 and maintain a 2.5 grade point average once they enroll at Alabama State.
“We are excited to be able to offer this scholarship to the out-of- state students who choose Alabama State University,” said Quinton T. Ross Jr., president of Alabama State University. “ASU has always been fortunate to attract students from across the nation, and we want to make it easier for them to become members of Hornet Nation. Offering these scholarships is one means of accomplishing that goal.”
