The Arizona Homeschool Scholarship Fund (AHSF) provides eligible Arizona homeschooled students with financial assistance in pursuing post-secondary education from a college, university, or trade school. The AHSF was established to recognize Arizona homeschooled students’ achievements, assist in their post-secondary education, and honor the sacrifice made by their parents.
From 2001 to 2016, AFHE has awarded more than $92,500 to 73 outstanding homeschool applicants for their post-secondary education. To further expand the program AHSC now includes 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, criteria, title, and purpose.
2017 Designated Scholarships
In addition to the AFHE General Scholarship that all applicants will be considered for, students may apply for one or more of the available Designated Scholarships.
We are pleased to announce the Designated Scholarships available for 2017. Two are brand new, including one for the child of a single parent and the other for a student who is starting his/her own business.
We are grateful for the opportunities provided by these generous donors!
- LEWIS SCHOLARSHIP: The donors are looking for a civic-minded student with a Christian worldview who seeks to apply Judeo-Christian values in order to positively impact policy and culture.
- MARGIE FOSTER MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP: This scholarship will be awarded to a homeschool graduate pursuing post-secondary education who is the child of a single parent.
- FIRST CHOICE PEST CONTROL BUSINESS SCHOLARSHIP: The donors are looking for a graduating senior who is starting or has started his/her own business.
Application Deadline: March 10, 2017
Eligible students must have been homeschooled for all four years of high school in accordance with Arizona Revised Statutes.
