IMPACT OF YOUR CONTRIBUTION
Arizona's children, indeed all of American's children, deserve high quality teachers in every classroom. The academic trajectory of children who experience high quality teachers over the years is for more promising than children who do not have quality teachers. Obtaining a higher education degree has become more expensive over the years, making access more difficult for all young people who are eligible and motivated to attend college. Providing scholarships helps our excellent students cover the cost of tuition and books, thus enable them to graduate with the smallest debt load possible.
Below are annual scholarship options that you can donate to that will enable our College of Education to be able to offer strong financial packages to qualified students in need of financial assistance. Thank you for your consideration and support!

Arizona Teaching Fellows - for donors who wish to support a merit based scholarship that will be offered to selected undergraduates and graduate students who are committed to pursuing teaching careers in Arizona with strong preference given to Southern Arizona school districts in the Greater Tucson Area.
