Rio Salado is looking for professionals with a bachelor’s degree in a STEM-related field to apply for SMILE (Science and Math Innovation Learning Environments), funded by the National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Scholarship Grant.  For more information, please visit our website.

Maricopa Community Colleges Academic Works

This districtwide tool allows you to apply for college-specific and external scholarship opportunities.  Once you complete your application, you will automatically be eligible for all scholarships that are partnered with the Maricopa Community Colleges Academic Works Program.

Maricopa County Community Colleges Foundation

These scholarship opportunities are provided by the foundation and range from private donors to district foundation initiatives. One application provides eligibility to all opportunities currently available.

Arizona Foundation

The Arizona Foundation is a compilation of private donor opportunities not limited to Rio Salado College or the Maricopa County Community Colleges. As with the other Academic Works programs, one application will determine your eligibility for all opportunities.  It’s important to verify partnership eligibility with Rio Salado College, since this program is not exclusive to Rio Salado or Maricopa County Community Colleges.
