To be eligible for scholarship or the scholarship and loan program, all students must meet the following criteria:
1. Unmet Financial need, as determined by Federal guidelines
2. Cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 or better
3. U.S. Citizenship (resident aliens are not eligible)
4. Arizona resident
5. Full time student status (community college students must be
enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours)
Scholarships may be renewed if students continue to show financial need and maintain academic achievement. A progress review will be done each semester to verify completion of credit hours and cumulative G.P.A.
Students at the university level are awarded a maximum of $2,000 per year. Students who have previously obtained a bachelor degree, regardless of field, are not eligible for scholarship funds.
Students that meet eligibility criteria and are enrolled at a participating community college are eligible for up to $1,000 in scholarship funds each academic year. Awards are based on the number of credit hours taken per semester.
6-8 hours = $250 per semester
9-11 hours = $375 per semester
12 + hours = $500 per semester
Eligibility status for the scholarship program for community college students is limited to $2,000 regardless of the number of semesters the student attends at any community college.
Community college students continuing on at the university level are eligible for renewal at the University level, if they enroll at a partner school. Renewal students will receive priority when transferring to another partner school, but may have to wait until the next academic year to receive funds.
