Applications

Getting Started

The application period for 2021-22 school year is now closed.

If you have applied for a scholarship already, the information below will explain the award process. If you have any other questions, please contact apply@arizonaleader.org.

Note: This year we are only accepting scholarship applications via the online portal. In addition to what is submitted via the portal, the following supplemental forms are also required for some applications.

SUPPLEMENTAL FORMS

Application Processing

Once we receive your application it will be sent to our processing team. After review, we will send you another email letting you know if your application is complete or incomplete.

Scholarship Awards Notification

If your application is accepted we will send out scholarship award notifications via email in August. The notification process can take several weeks to notify all recipients. Your school will also be notified of any scholarships awarded and they are a great resource for any questions about the scholarship.

Scholarships will be sent directly to your school. Any questions on how the scholarship will be applied towards your tuition should be directed to your school.

Our scholarships are not awarded on a first come first serve basis but submitting early is always beneficial. If there are any issues with your application you have the opportunity to correct them prior to our final submission deadline.

Tax Information

We require the first two pages of the previous year’s 1040 tax return. Applications submitted without the taxes will be rejected. If you filed an extension, please include a copy of your IRS extension paperwork & the first two pages of the last tax return. If you qualify for a scholarship this will put your scholarship on ‘hold’ until we receive your most recent tax return. You will have until October 15 to submit your taxes to us. We will be unable to award a scholarship to you until we review the coordinating tax paperwork.

A School Tuition Organization cannot award, restrict, or reserve scholarships solely on the basis of a donor’s recommendation. A taxpayer may not claim a tax credit if the taxpayer agrees to swap donations with another taxpayer to benefit either taxpayer’s own dependent. (A.R.S. 43-1089)
