Scholarships are considered “free money” meaning you do not have to repay them upon graduation. There are many scholarships out there, offered by high schools, colleges, private donors, foundations, businesses, churches, non-profits, communities, employers, and professional organizations. Some are based on merit, talent, and/or financial need. Scholarships will have a separate application process that must be completed.
Only those with a lawful presence in the US may qualify for MCCCD scholarships or federal financial aid. This does not apply to applications for private scholarship funds held in and distributed by the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation.
