Flinn Scholars

Five Flinn Scholarship information sessions set for March and April

March 3, 2020

By Chris Farrington

The Flinn Scholars Program will host five information sessions this spring—including in Yuma for the first time in several years—to present the benefits of one of the most prestigious merit-based scholarships in the nation and share strategies to build the strongest application.

Who Should Attend

The information presented will be valuable for high-school sophomores and juniors. Parents and guardians are welcome to attend.

These sessions are strongly encouraged, but attendance is not required in order to apply for the Flinn Scholarship.

Beyond the in-person sessions, the Flinn Scholars Program offers an online information session.

Who Will Present

Along with Flinn Scholars Program representatives and current Flinn Scholars, attendees at the sessions will hear from Honors-college and admissions staff from Arizona’s public universities.

How to Apply for the Flinn Scholarship

The Class of 2021 application will be available in mid-August with a mid-September deadline. 

Twenty of Arizona’s highest-achieving high-school seniors are typically selected each year, joining a community of nearly 650 current Scholars and alumni.

Flinn Scholarship Benefits

The merit-based scholarship program covers the cost of tuition, fees, housing, and meals at Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, or the University of Arizona. In addition, Flinn Scholars participate in a three-week international seminar after their freshman year and at least one additional study-abroad experience.

The overall financial package is valued at more than $120,000.
