In an effort to increase diversity among the undergraduate student population at Auburn University, the Provost has created, with the help of generous financial support from corporate partners and the Auburn Alumni Association, the Provost Leadership Undergraduate Scholarship (PLUS) Program. The PLUS program assists participants financially by providing them a $2,000 scholarship per academic year renewable up to three years, and supports them academically and socially to ensure that they succeed at Auburn University. The Auburn Alumni Association has joined this effort by supplying funding from the Auburn Alumni Association Scholars Endowment.

Incoming freshmen must complete the scholarship application through the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM) by midnight CST on December 1. To receive consideration, students should indicate interest when prompted on the scholarship application. Auburn Alumni Association PLUS Scholarships are awarded in early April.
