Click on the scholarship name to learn more about each opportunity. Complete one application to be considered for a variety of scholarships during the 2019-2020 academic year. Each Foundation scholarship has specific criteria and 98% of our privately funded scholarships are available to students regardless of their national origin. Anyone interested in attending one of the ten Maricopa Community Colleges can complete a Foundation scholarship application!
