The Arizona Community Foundation’s online scholarship portal is now accepting applications at azfoundation.org/scholarships. Scholarships are available to students throughout Yavapai County, including Sedona and the Verde Valley, who are attending postsecondary schools during the 2023-24 academic year.
As Arizona’s largest independent provider of scholarship funding, ACF offers access to more than 150 scholarships through a single online application. Applicants complete one general application that instantly matches them with scholarship opportunities for which they may be eligible. During the 2022-23 academic year, ACF awarded over $5.4 million in scholarships to students across Arizona.
Scholarships are available for high school seniors, current college students, graduate students, or adult re-entry students attending accredited two-year and four-year colleges and universities, as well as career and technical schools anywhere in the United States. Each award has its own deadline, with some closing as early as March or as late as May. Students are encouraged to apply early to maximize their opportunities.
Scholarships can be awarded based on merit or financial need and may be restricted to students in Yavapai County, Sedona, and the Verde Valley or with specific demographic characteristics. Visit azfoundation.org/scholarships to access scholarship awards and learn more about scholarships available through ACF. High schools interested in having local ACF staff present to seniors about available scholarships can contact Regional Director Jennifer Perry [email protected] or Regional Director Lisa Sahady at [email protected].
