Rio Salado's Insurance Studies program, which is the first of its kind in Arizona and for community colleges, was developed in direct response to the insurance industry’s need for qualified workers.

State Farm has become a very active partner in this program and has provided full scholarship awards to 18 students to complete the Insurance Studies Certificate of Completion (CCL). See related blog and learn more about scholarship opportunities.
