The Flinn Scholarship isn’t about what you get. It’s about who you become and the impact you make. With the world-class education made possible by the Flinn Scholarship, you can become an agent of discovery, creativity and leadership who will make a difference.
The Flinn Scholarship—valued at more than $130,000—covers tuition, fees, housing, and meals at one of Arizona’s public universities, plus study abroad. Each year, about 20 top Arizona high-school seniors are chosen to learn from amazing faculty, business leaders, and civic innovators and join a vibrant, eclectic community—including a powerful alumni network.
What’s the Flinn Scholar blueprint? There is none. Scholars emerge from throughout Arizona and become leaders in every discipline you can imagine.
The 36 Flinn Scholarship Finalists from the Class of 2024—high-school seniors representing 30 Arizona high schools and seven counties—will interview in March with the program’s Selection Committee with the hope of becoming one of this year’s 20 Flinn Scholars.
More than 1,000 Arizona high-school seniors applied in the fall for a chance at earning the merit-based 2024 Flinn Scholarship. The 80 Flinn Scholarship Semifinalists were previously announced in early January.
The Flinn Scholars Class of 2024 will be announced by the Flinn Foundation in the spring. The Flinn Scholarship, now in its 39th year, provides funding for tuition, housing, meals, and study abroad—a value of more than $130,000. [Read more]
Arizona business leaders Chris Camacho and Adam Goodman—the heads of Greater Phoenix Economic Council and Goodmans, respectively—have been elected to the Flinn Foundation board of directors, which is responsible for allocating funding for the foundation’s grants and programs while setting its strategic direction.

Goodman represents the third generation to lead the Goodmans family business, a furniture and office design company. Goodman, an ardent supporter of the arts, journalism, and health care, is also a Flinn-Brown Fellow, participating in 2023 in the cornerstone program of the Arizona Center for Civic Leadership at the Flinn Foundation.

“Having the opportunity to meet Laura Linney was an incredibly insightful one. To be entirely honest, I was not sure what to expect walking into the meeting room considering this was my first Arizona State University Centennial Lecture. The only thing that I knew going in was the Flinn Scholars would be having a private small-group discussion with an incredibly celebrated and well-known actress. The idea itself was surreal; I never expected to interact so closely with someone so esteemed in their field.”
Nagasriya Ramisetty, a Class of 2023 Flinn Scholar studying physiology and medical sciences at the University of Arizona, reflects on her experience attending the ASU Centennial Lecture and the exclusive conversation the Scholars enjoyed with Linney. [Read more]

The session is designed to help high-school students, parents, teachers, and counselors learn about the benefits of the Flinn Scholarship. Flinn Scholars Program staff presented strategies to assist in building a strong application, and Flinn Scholars shared their experiences and what high-achieving students can anticipate as Honors students at Arizona’s public universities.

One hallmark of the Flinn Scholarship is two funded study-abroad experiences—a group summer seminar after freshman year and a destination chosen by the Flinn Scholar.
The summer seminar allows Scholars to deeply experience other cultures in both urban and rural settings, which have ranged from Hungary and Romania to China and France and most recently in 2023, Finland. “The Finnish Experiment: Exploring Finnish and American Societies Through a Comparative Lens” examined Finland’s educational system in a comparative context to the American K-12 system.
The time abroad strengthens community and prepares each Flinn Scholar for their individual study-abroad experience, which can range from a summer to a semester to a year. [Read more]

There are a number of specific ways throughout your student’s high-school years to help ensure a strong application and candidacy.
In addition to student-submitted materials, the application requires two teacher recommendations and a high-school academic counselor’s report.
