From homework help to scholarships, we provide support that helps students succeed in the classroom and in life. The heart of our mission is to mobilize the community support student success.  We do this by supporting best practice initiatives and capturing the voice of students by including them in our work. 

Asheville City Schools Foundation Scholarships

Please contact your school counselor to inquire about scholarship opportunities for students graduating from Asheville High School and SILSA.

ACSF awards over 30 scholarships each year.  You may complete the ACSF Common Scholarship Application to be considered for any of the scholarships that you meet eligibility requirements.  If you are interested in financial need based scholarships, you must complete a FAFSA application. 

Please see your school counselor to find out more about the FAFSA process.  This useful guide from the U.S. Dept. of Education will answer many questions about funding your college education.
