In April 2013, the Foundation received 2,396 scholarship applications for over $600,000 in scholarship funds to be awarded for the 2013 Fall semester.
Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation Scholarships are privately funded and open to all Maricopa Community College students. A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is not required to apply.
Foundation scholarship applications open twice a year. Students are able to create an account and apply for scholarships online during two application periods, once during the Fall semester and once during the Spring semester. An email notification with specific application dates will be sent to students, staff and faculty each term prior to the application period.
Foundation scholarship applications are reviewed by Maricopa Community Colleges faculty, staff, scholarship donors and community volunteers. Award and denial notifications are sent via email. Awards are generally posted at the start of each semester.
