Participation in the Aspiring Scholars Award Program (ASAP) provides you with the opportunity to experience firsthand the exceptional education you will receive as a University of Dallas student. During the high school junior visit program, Aspiring Scholars Preview, you will have the opportunity to participate. The Aspiring Scholars Award Program includes an exam that is based on the nationally recognized University of Dallas Core curriculum. The exam consists of a multiple choice and an essay section and serves as a window into the Core curriculum, allowing you to sample what you will learn when you become a student at University of Dallas.
You can earn up to $8,000 in scholarship money based on your performance on the exam. Students who take the ASAP exam receive the larger of either the scholarship amount they earned on the ASAP exam or the Academic Achievement Scholarship they earned through the application for admission.
Participation in the program does not require any advanced preparation and will in no way hinder your chances for admission or other scholarship opportunities. This makes the process of taking the ASAP exam a risk-free scholarship experience. In addition, you are eligible to apply early and will receive other application benefits including the waiver of the essay, teacher recommendation and application fee.

Award recipients are in no way committed to accept enrollment as a result of participating in the ASAP program. If admitted to University of Dallas, the ASAP Scholarship will be included in a scholarship notification letter sent following the admission decision.
