Existing honors students: the program staff know scholarships!  Let us help you fund your higher education goals, beginning with the opportunities found below. 

Chancellor's & Foundation Scholarships

The Honors Program sponsors two scholarships for Honors Achievement Awardees who are active members of the Honors Program, and in good standing. Only one application form is required to apply for both scholarships:

Chancellor's Scholarship One tuition waiver (up to 18 credits each semester), plus $250 a semester for books and supplies, is awarded each year at Phoenix College.

Foundation Scholarship Two $500 cash scholarships are awarded each year at Phoenix College.


  • You must be an Honors Achievement Award recipient and an active member of the Honors Program during the semester in which you apply.
  • Must be a full-time Honors student during the academic year you receive the scholarship. This means you are enrolled in 12 or more credits, including an Honors course, in both fall and spring semesters.
  • Must intend to graduate with the Honors Program distinction (having completed at least 15 credits in Honors courses with a graduation GPA of 3.5 or higher) 

DeMund Foundation Transfer Scholarship for Honors Students

Presidents' Scholars and Honors Achievement Awardees who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university and who will graduate with Honors Program designation* from Phoenix College can apply for the DeMund Foundation Transfer scholarship. Other restrictions apply.  Visit the Honors Hub for application and details.

Honors Program designation means that a student has achieved a graduation GPA of 3.5 and completed 15 credits of Honors courses at the time of graduation.

Padriac Hill Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Padriac Hill Memorial Scholarship Fund helps current Phoenix College honors students in a variety of ways.

About Padriac Meriadoc Hill  The fund celebrates the legacy of Padriac Meriadoc Hill, a gifted honors student who died at age 20.  Growing up in diverse communities around the country, and world, Hill ultimately graduated from Glendale's Independence High School prior to enrolling in Phoenix College's former Classical Studies Program.  An artist and poet, Hill was also deeply spiritual, serving as a leader in the Tirosh movement, a series of interdenominational religious retreats. Hill's parents, Eric and Sylvia, accepted his degree posthumously, in 1993.

The fund was established by Hill's classmates, parents, and retired Honors Program Coordinator, Barbara Van Sittert.
