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).
