SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

AICASA recognizes academic excellence, community and volunteer service when evaluating applicants.

To encourage and reward these values among our applicants, AICASA has established an endowment of a select number of full and partial scholarships to qualified students for each entering semester. Scholarship criteria are competitive and funding is limited. Accepted students are invited to apply for available scholarships posted on the university website. AICASA scholarships do not preclude you from seeking outside grants, scholarships and awards.
