Swift Scholarships

Scholarships for college, university or technical training encourage academic achievement for our children. These awards also encourage our young students to participate in campus activities and engage in community service opportunities.

When granted, these renewable awards assist our students with up to $2,500 per year toward their tuition expense.

The Swift Scholarship is administered by the Arizona Community Foundation and can be renewed annually for up to 4 consecutive years (8 semesters). Students will be contacted via email each spring with instructions on how to request continued funding.  Students will be considered for renewal as long as they register for and complete a minimum of 12 semester hours in each semester while receiving the scholarship and are determined to be in good standing and eligible for continuation at the post-secondary institution.
