Interested in picking up a few classes or enrolling in a degree program this fall but need help paying for classes? Already on track but need a little financial assistance? Did you know that the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation offers hundreds of scholarships for all ten Maricopa Community Colleges?

The best part is that the process is very simple! You only have to fill out one application to apply to all the available scholarships. Need help getting started?

Ready to get started? Apply today by going to mcccdf.org/scholarships. Deadline for applications is April 30, 2024.

Are There GPA or Other Academic Requirements?

The Foundation offers multiple scholarships with different requirements for eligibility. You don’t have to be a straight-A, 4.0 GPA student to potentially qualify for a Foundation scholarship.

What is the Scholarship Amount? 

The average Foundation scholarship amount is $684, but the amount can vary depending on the scholarship type, the number of qualified applicants, and the specific parameters of the scholarship.

Do the Scholarships Just Cover Tuition?

While many Foundation scholarships are specifically earmarked for tuition, books, and school fees, there are also a number of funds available that can help students pay for utilities, rent, transportation, food, childcare, and other costs.

Do I Need a FAFSA® ID To Apply?

You don’t need to have your FAFSA® ID to apply for a majority of Foundation scholarships. The ones that are needs-based, however, do require them. If you’re looking to apply for student aid or other scholarships for spring, filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid and getting your ID would be a wise move as many non-Foundation scholarships will ask for it.

Is There a Cost for Applying? 

It doesn't cost anything to apply for a Foundation scholarship. The application process will take around 45 minutes to complete, though, so be prepared to dedicate some time to filling it out.

Need More Help?

You can schedule a session with a Scholarship Coordinator for one-on-one guidance on the application process, tips on how to write your essay, and answer any other questions you may have about the scholarships that are available through the Foundation.
