Armstrong Family Foundation Scholarship

Scholarship information

Started in 1999 by Jim and Jo-Ann Armstrong, the Armstrong Family Foundation Scholarship Program is designed to help deserving students with family circumstances beyond their control that limit financial resources and prevent access to educational opportunities.

The scholarship offers up to $10,000 a year. The scholarship may be renewed annually if the student continues to meet criteria, including participation in program events, and show progress toward a degree.

But even more importantly, the scholarship offers a strong support network and personal involvement from the Armstrong family. The Armstrongs meet regularly with recipients to make sure they are working through obstacles and reaching their goals. The program also features monthly activities and events to enhance personal and professional development.

This scholarship is administered and awarded by the ASU Foundation.
