Welcome to the Arizona Community Foundation’s Scholarship Application Portal!

As the state’s largest provider of private scholarships, we are here to help you fund your education. The process is simple: sign up for an account, log in to fill out a General Application, submit and have your eligibility determined, allow the system to recommend opportunities you can continue to apply for, and be matched scholarships that require no further action! See a listing of open scholarship opportunities below.

This application is home to more than 90 scholarships, all with unique criteria. It is very likely that you were directed to the site by a specific company or organization to apply for specific funding. Find information about that (or any of our other scholarships) by using the search bar on this page. You will only see scholarships that are currently open and taking applications.

As an applicant, you are required to read all of the information presented to you throughout this application process. Confused by a question? Hover over the question mark next to get a bit more information! Need a little extra guidance? Refer to our FAQ Sheet or simply give us a call at 602.381.1400!

Apply early and check your submission often. The earlier you have a fully complete and submitted application, the more scholarships your information will be matched against. “Early” in this situation means “fully complete with all documentation, references, and required questions submitted by the posted deadline of a scholarship opportunity”. Most deadlines in 2016 fall on March 15th, March 31st, April 29th, May 16th and May 31st.
