Students must demonstrate passion for their field of study, and additional preference will be given to students who enroll in or plan to enroll in an aviation certificate or 2-year degree program. The Arizona Community Foundation provides scholarships for high school seniors and current college students throughout Arizona. Selection for awards is based primarily on academic records, financial need (as demonstrated by the FAFSA paperwork), and the quality of other submission items such as essays and recommendation letters.
