Scholarship awards are for one year of undergraduate study for part-time and full-time students at an accredited college, trade/vocational school or university located in Arizona. The full scholarship amount may only be applied to consecutive academic terms that commence within the calendar year that the scholarship is awarded.

Applicants may reapply in subsequent years to be considered for additional funding.

  • Applicants must re-apply to be considered for additional funding. Preference will be given to applicants awarded in the prior year, up to a maximum of five consecutive years, as long as they continue to meet the eligibility criteria.
