Apply for Scholarships
The STARS Scholarships online system is open and is accepting applications for the 2013-2014 academic year.
There are three types of scholarships that can help fund your education at a Maricopa Community College:
- Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation Scholarships are privately funded and open to all Maricopa Community College students. In most cases they may be used at any Maricopa Commmunity College and, in some cases, non-Maricopa colleges and universities. A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is not required to apply. Apply for Foundation scholarships or check the status of an application.
- College-Specific Scholarships are available through each of the Maricopa Community Colleges and are generally restricted to one campus (for example, Presidential or honors scholarships). Learn more about scholarship opportunities at your campus.
- External Scholarships are offered through various local and national organizations. Free scholarship search engines are available to aid in your search for funding and enhance your knowledge about financial aid. View external scholarship resources.
Remember, scholarships are only part of your potential financial aid package. Eligibility for grants, loans, federal work study and some campus-specific scholarships is based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Consult the financial aid office at your campus for more information or fill out the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Reviewing residency and citizenship information is recommended before applying for financial aid.
