Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Maricopa County Community College (Publicly Funded) District (MCCCD) Scholarship Website!

Completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is an essential part of applying for scholarships through the Maricopa Community College (Publicly Funded) District Scholarship Program. You may also use your FAFSA to apply for other types of financial aid funds and other scholarships. You will not be disqualified for a scholarship because you completed a FAFSA. In many cases, scholarship funds, reduces the borrowing of Federal Education loans and NEVER cancels Federal grants.

It is important to note that you must complete the general scholarship application on this site to be considered for opportunities that match your profile. We encourage you to apply for as many scholarships as you believe best fits your academic achievements, your goals, your volunteer history and other attributes.

An additional requirement for completing the Maricopa Community College (Publicly Funded) District scholarship application is that you must show Lawful Presence. Please click on the link to find out about additional information about Lawful Presence.

If you believe you have issues with lawful presence or, would just like to apply for other/more scholarship opportunities please visit the Maricopa Foundation (Privately Funded) scholarship by clicking HERE.
