Scholarship Opportunities


In recent years, colleges have become more and more expensive for students trying to get their degrees and receive a higher education. The way to ensure financial stability while attending academia is through scholarships, and luckily every college has a deluge of possible scholarships to help you save money and gain merits. I need to preface the rest of this article by talking about how this is only going through in-state colleges and the opportunities they offer; you can find so many different scholarships for every subject and aspirations you could imagine.

One of Arizona’s most prestigious scholarships is the Northern Arizona University Lumberjack SchoIarship; with a grade point average of 3.75 or higher unweighted, you have a chance to get 100% tuition for both semesters as long as you maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA during your tenure at NAU. AImost every Arizona high schooler knows of the Lumberjack and for good reason; it doesn’t require any unique circumstances and it pays for your entire tuition, which cuts back on the costs of college immensely and is a great thing to apply for if you are a prospective NAU student. They pick multiple students per year to give it out, so it is always worth a shot to try and get it. You can find all the information you need on the Lumberjack here.

Another big scholarship program is the Flinn Scholars. It applies to any Arizona public university and can cover a large portion of yearly tuition. To receive the scholarship, you need to have scored 29 or more on the ACT or 1300 on the SAT, attain a 3.5 GPA, and rank in the top five percent of your graduating class. It’s a hard one for sure, but the work is well worth it, as Flinn Scholarships can be accepted to most public Arizona public universities, so you could go to your preferred college and save some money. The Flinn foundation’s website has more information here.

There are so many different scholarships that I truly can’t list them all. Every scholarship has an audience, has a goal in mind to ensure our next generation can be the brightest in history. Go Knights!
