Students at Phoenix College


Thanks to the generosity of many individuals, corporations, organizations and other donors, students have access to hundreds of scholarships that are available to assist both academically deserving students and those who demonstrate financial need.

Online Scholarship Applications

There are now two online scholarship applications you can fill out for financial help. As there are different scholarships in both databases, you will want to search and apply. You may wish to cut and paste information from the District Scholarship application into any applicable applications in the Foundation Scholarship database. Same questions are often asked in both.

Check back frequently for new scholarship opportunities and to update your application.
