Investing in Education for Arizona's Future


The Arizona Community Foundation is Arizona's largest private provider of college scholarships, awarding millions of dollars annually to help students achieve their educational goals.

Through our online system, high school seniors and college students complete one application and are automatically matched with every one of our 90 scholarship opportunities for which they qualify. 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.

Scholarships are a critical tool in helping students obtain the training and preparation needed for the jobs of tomorrow. Arizona's economic competitiveness is dependent upon the availability and quality of a skilled workforce across a variety of fields and industries. Providing pathways for students to prepare themselves for careers is a critically important step in ensuring a healthy economy for our state.
