The Flinn Scholars Program will host a live, virtual information session starting at 6 p.m. Sept. 1 for potential applicants to learn about the most prestigious college scholarship available for Arizona high-school graduates.

Registration is required for the information session, where students and their families will hear from current Flinn Scholars and university staff about the opportunities and resources available to students who attend Arizona’s public honors colleges.

For those students and parents unable to attend the Sept. 1 virtual event, a pre-recorded information session, also available in Spanish, can be found on the website.

The information session will occur shortly after the Class of 2022 application opens on Aug. 23. The deadline for students to apply for the Flinn Scholarship is Sept. 27.

The Flinn Scholarship—valued at more than $120,000—covers tuition, fees, housing, and meals at one of Arizona’s three public universities, plus study abroad.

Each year, about 20 excelling Arizona high-school seniors are selected for the prestigious merit-based award. Prospective Flinn Scholars are evaluated on criteria such as grade-point average and class rank, but also on leadership and involvement, service to the community, ability to communicate, and personal characteristics.
