At the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, we believe a thriving community depends on supporting the educational aspirations of students to help ensure they have every opportunity to become future leaders in a talented and skilled workforce.

Scholarships and awards at the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona are as unique and diverse as the donors who establish them. These programs are made possible by the generosity of donors who want to support students in need of financial assistance to achieve their dreams. Many scholarship funds welcome additional contributions to increase the number of scholarships available.  See below for details.
