Important Factors in the Scholarship Selection
Letters of recommendation must be from individuals unrelated to the applicant. The statement of intention and goals should be an explanation of the applicant’s career goal and how attending school will help the applicant to attain it. The scholarships are competitive and applications do not guarantee an award. Awardees will be selected by AAA Arizona.
AAA will issue a check for the full amount, to be placed directly into a 501(c)(3) set up by the educational institution. The participating college/university will be responsible for dispersing the funds into the student’s financial aid account to use in paying for educational expenses.
