The ASU WISH Scholarship was established to offset the costs and expenses of ASU graduate students participating in internships based in Washington DC. Any ASU graduate student participating in an internship for ASU credit in the respective semester who is able to demonstrate financial need is eligible. Scholarship recipients will live in a pre-designated property managed by Washington Intern Student Housing (WISH).
Recipients receive partial funding toward the cost of living in WISH Housing's Harley House (228 East Capitol Street SE) for one semester during their internship period. Awards range from $1000-4000 and will be applied to the recipients' student account through ASU Financial Aid. Multiple awards available for fall, spring, and summer semesters.

Each fellow is personally responsible for individual taxes related to this award. Additional information regarding tax issues related to awards can be found at tax considerations. Specific questions should be directed to a tax advisor or contact the ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services.
An "overaward" is when a student’s need-based awards exceed his/her financial need, or the total of the awards exceeds the cost of attendance. If a student has been overawarded, federal regulations require ASU to adjust his/her awards which may result in a reduction in awards or a bill. Need-based aid include grants, scholarships, Federal Work-Study, Federal Perkins Loans, and outside resources (i.e. faculty/staff tuition benefits, scholarships, stipends, etc.). Non-need based aid includes unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans, Federal Graduate PLUS Loans and Private Education Loans. Questions regarding overawards should be directed to the ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services.
