Arizona Scholarships

The Grand Canyon State of Arizona features a population of just under 7 million and is home to nearly 150 colleges and universities. Among these are large state universities such as Arizona State and the University of Arizona. Also, the state features an extensive and well-developed network of community colleges.

This sunny paradise enjoys exports such as cotton, cattle, copper and citrus. Since farming, food production and cattle ranching are so big here you'll find plenty of scholarship opportunities in fields such as agronomy, animal sciences and sustainable development.

But it's not all about farming here in Arizona. There are a host of state scholarship opportunities for a wide range of fields. We're talking about majors like architecture, construction management, nursing, accounting and occupational therapy to name just a few.
