Arizona Homeschool Scholarship Fund
The Arizona Homeschool Scholarship Fund (AHSF) provides eligible Arizona homeschooled students with financial assistance in pursuing a degree from a college or university. The AHSF was established to recognize Arizona homeschooled student’s achievements, assist in their college education, and honor the sacrifice made by their parents.
Most homeschooled students come from single-income families who make significant sacrifices to provide this unique education experience. Often these families lack access to financial resources for post-secondary education that are available to students educated in public and private schools.
In the summer of 2000, AFHE formed the Arizona Homeschool Scholarship Committee (AHSC), which is overseen by the AFHE board of directors. Comprised of Valley business professionals, the AHSC established criteria and an administrative process to operate the scholarship fund. The AHSC reviews applications and recommends scholarship awards for qualified students.
From 2001 to 2012, the AHSC has awarded more than $59,000 to 48 outstanding homeschool applicants for their post-secondary education. To further expand the program AHSC has now added designated scholarships. The designated scholarship program allows donations in the name of an individual, family, business, or other entity. This approach allows donors to personalize the scholarships by specifying such things as amount, conditions, title, and purpose.
