$1M in scholarships now available for Arizona students

The Arizona Community Foundation’s online scholarship portal is now accepting applications, making scholarship funding opportunities available to students across Arizona for the 2016-17 school year.

As Arizona’s largest private provider of scholarship funding, ACF offers a system with access to more than 90 scholarship awards with a single online application.

Completing one general application automatically matches applicants with every scholarship opportunity within the system for which they qualify, according to a press release.

High school seniors, current college students and graduate-level students attending schools anywhere in the United States can apply. Scholarships are available for two-year and four-year colleges and universities as well as vocational and technical schools.

Application deadlines for scholarships vary, ranging from early spring to the end of May. Students are encouraged to apply early to maximize their opportunities of financial support, the release stated.

The awards available serve a diversity of students. Some are given based on merit or financial need, while others are awarded to students in a particular geographic region or with specific demographic characteristics.

Visit www.azfoundation.org/scholarships for the link to access more than $1 million in scholarship awards.

Established in 1978, the Arizona Community Foundation is a statewide family of charitable funds supported by thousands of Arizonans.
