It’s that time of the year for Arizona’s most excelling high-school students to apply for the state’s most prestigious merit-based scholarship. 

The 2024 Flinn Scholarship application opened Sept. 11. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, Oct. 18. 

The Flinn Foundation annually selects about 20 Flinn Scholars, who each receive a full ride to Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, or the University of Arizona—valued at more than $130,000. 

The scholarship covers tuition, fees, housing, and meals at one of the three universities, at least two study abroad experiences, plus the connections and community found in a network of more than 700 current and alumni Flinn Scholars. 

The application is comprised of: 

  • Forms about current studies, extracurricular activities, and employment; 
  • Three essay prompts; 
  • One academic recommendation, submitted by a high-school teacher; 
  • One leadership/service recommendation, submitted by a teacher, professor, coach, employer, or community member; 
  • A counselor report that includes a copy of the student’s transcript and school profile; and 
  • SAT or ACT scores (no minimum score needed to apply). 

Learn more about the Flinn Scholarship’s benefits and requirements, and review application tips and frequently asked questions, from these sections of the website:  

A live virtual information session will begin at 6 p.m. Sept. 11. Registration is still available for the session (https://flinn.zoom.us/j/81677058454), which is designed to assist students in building a strong application and provide insights about the Flinn Scholar experience and the Honors colleges at each university.
