The Arizona Community Foundation allows high school seniors and current college students throughout Arizona to apply for more than 90 scholarship awards online with one general application.

Applicants are matched with all awards for which they qualify

High school seniors, current college students, or graduate level students attending schools anywhere in the U.S. can apply. The general application process begins in January each year and students are advised to apply early to qualify for the most awards. Some award deadlines begin in February and some deadlines are as late as May. Scholarships are available for two-year and four-year colleges and universities as well as technical and vocational schools.

Applications are currently closed

Profiles from the 2017 scholarship application process will be reset and when the next application cycle begins, interested applicants must re-apply online. The majority of ACF scholarship opportunities will open in January of 2018.

STO Scholarships assist Kindergarten through high school students at private schools

Students entering Kindergarten through 12th grade can apply for scholarship awards for tuition-bearing, private schools through the Arizona Community Foundation School Tuition Organization.

Offline Opportunities

In addition to the scholarships available through our online system, explore the opportunities listed below:

The Cox Volunteers Development Fund allows Cox employees to develop their professional skills while benefitting the community. It was established in honor of Ivan Johnson, former Cox Communications VP of Public Affairs. During Johnson’s 32 years of leadership in Arizona’s telecommunications industry, he inspired, worked with and mentored aspiring leaders and was a leader among the community. Under Ivan’s direction, the Arizona Cox Charities program was established in 1996 followed by the Cox Volunteers program in 2006, thus solidifying Cox’s commitment to community. A strong supporter of continuous education at every level, this Cox SW Region fund carries on that legacy.

    The Navajo Youth Achievement Award supports Navajo youth that are seeking to participate in an extra-curricular activity that has a fee, program expense, or travel costs. This is not a college scholarship.

The International Caterers Association Educational Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation created to provide educational opportunities to professional caterers worldwide.
