The Arizona Community Foundation is Arizona’s largest independent provider of college scholarships. Thanks to generous donors, we award millions of dollars annually to help students achieve their educational goals. 

Through our online system containing more than 150 scholarship opportunities, students complete one application and are matched with available scholarships, based upon their eligibility requirements. The application opens annually in January, with most awards given by May of each year.

The ACF Scholarship Office is part of the Arizona Venture Fund for Quality Education, a multi-faceted philanthropic initiative led by ACF and the endowments of John & Delys Ellis to enhance the quality of education across Arizona.

Applications are currently closed. Profiles from the 2022 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 2023.
