Alumni Scholarships

Alumni Scholarships

A limited number of scholarships are available to students with a parent or guardian who is an alumnus of Auburn University. Students should indicate on the application for admission if they have a parent or guardian who is an alumnus of Auburn University. Following acceptance for admission, students must complete the scholarship application in the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM) by February 1. Students should also indicate interest in legacy scholarships and provide parent information when prompted on the scholarship application in AUSOM. Scholarships are awarded competitively, and consideration does not guarantee an award.
