A college education can be transformative. Earning a certificate or degree opens doors to personal and professional opportunities and greater economic and social mobility.
By preparing individuals and their families to thrive, higher education helps to build vibrant communities and stronger state economies. For these reasons, Education Forward Arizona works to expand college access and increase college attainment in our state. We believe that helping more students go to and graduate from college is one of the most important ways we can ensure a bright, prosperous future for all Arizonans.
Since 2005, Education Forward Arizona has worked with students enrolled in postsecondary education across the state of Arizona to provide support services that empower them to persist and thrive through college and beyond.
We work with our partners to administer the following scholarship opportunities:
- Education Forward Arizona Scholarship
- Helios Adelante Scholars
- Freeport-McMoRan Native American College Scholarship
- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona
