Aid and programs for diverse students
Arizona Foster Youth Programs
Arizona Foster Youth Award
In 2013, Governor Jan Brewer signed into law a bill to help Arizona’s foster youth earn a college degree by offering them free tuition. This five-year pilot program uses a combination of federal grants, scholarships, and university aid to cover the full amount of Arizona resident undergraduate tuition and fees.
Arizona Education and Training Voucher (ETV)
ETVs are federal funds that are intended to help former foster youth pay for postsecondary education. Funds may be used for tuition, housing, books, and qualified living expenses.
Blavin Scholars Program
The Blavin Scholars Program was created to provide assistance to Northern Arizona University undergraduate students who have been a part of the foster care system. If you are an Arizona resident and demonstrate financial need, you might be eligible for this scholarship.
