All-USA Scholarship (Fall)

This is an annual competition in the Fall semester open to students who will be transferring on to an accredited 4-year institution of higher education.  This scholarship pays two full years of tuition to one of our three Arizona public universities (ASU, NAU, or U of A) with money awarded for transfer.  

Chancellor's and Foundation Scholarship (February)

This scholarship covers tuition and fees for one full year (up to 18 credits per semester [in County tuition]) plus $250 per semester for books and supplies. To be eligible, a current full-time Honors student must plan to enroll on a full-time basis for the following year and maintain a GPA of 3.25 or higher. One scholarship is awarded at each college annually during the Spring semester.

Maricopa Foundation Scholarship, Publicly Funded (March and October)

This scholarship is awarded based upon the college Honors Coordinator’s decision. Amounts can vary. Check with your Honors Coordinator for eligibility requirements. (*International Students are eligible to apply)

Maricopa Foundation Scholarship, Privately Funded (March and October)

Maricopa Foundation scholarships include privately funded opportunities that are open to all MCCCD students and in some cases, non-Maricopa colleges and universities, as well. A FAFSA and verified lawful presence are not eligibility requirements for the majority of Maricopa Foundation scholarships.

The Foundation database is only open at specific times. Opportunities will be available in the Fall for Spring 2017. The application period for Fall 2016 has ended.

Both types of scholarships are available via AcademicWorks, but must be maintained in two different sites.  As many of the essay questions are the same, or very similar in nature, you may want to prepare your responses in a Word document so that you can copy and paste your responses into both applications.
