Apply for All-AZ Scholarship by Oct. 26

2015 ALL-AZ Scholars Rex Moore and John Field with President Bustamante
Each year Rio Salado names two of its students to the All-Arizona Academic Team. The prestigious honor includes a tuition award to one of Arizona’s three state universities along with cash scholarships in the range of $500-$1,000.

The top scholars will also have an opportunity to apply for membership on the All-USA Community College Academic Team and additional awards.

The Rio Salado scholarship committee is seeking students who are engaged and making a difference in their communities.

The committee is looking for students who demonstrate some or all of the following qualities:

● Outstanding academic rigor and grade point averages (3.6 or higher)
● Participation in honors programs
● Awards, honors, and recognition for academic achievement
● Service to the college and community

A major focal point of the application process is an essay, which students must submit to chronicle one significant endeavor or achievement as a community college student. The scholarship judges look for innovative, creative, original and lasting achievements or undertakings.
