THATCHER —The Arizona Community Foundation’s online scholarship portal is now accepting applications for scholarship funding opportunities.

Many of these scholarships are available to students in Graham and Greenlee counties attending post-secondary schools during the 2021-22 academic year. 

As Arizona’s largest independent provider of scholarship funding, ACF offers access to more than 100 scholarships with a single online application. Completing one general application matches applicants with scholarship opportunities within the system for which they may be eligible.

High school seniors, current college students, graduate students, or adult re-entry students attending accredited schools anywhere in the United States may apply. Scholarships are available for two-year and four-year colleges and universities, as well as career and technical schools. Each award has its own deadline, with some closing as early as March and some as late as May. Students are encouraged to apply early to maximize their opportunities. 

Some scholarships are awarded based on merit or financial need, while others are awarded to students in a particular geographic region or with specific demographic characteristics. Visit to access over $2 million in scholarship awards and to find out more about scholarships available through ACF.
