Flinn Scholarship Info Session

The Flinn Scholarship is much more than a full ride. It’s an opportunity to reach your highest potential and make an impact in your community.


With Arizona’s universities, we created the Flinn Scholarship—worth more than $130,000—to give Arizona students a world-class education. Benefits include funding for the full cost of tuition, housing, meals, and study abroad, plus membership in a remarkable network of current and alumni Scholars.

Join us September 20 for a live information session on Zoom to learn about the most prestigious college scholarship available for Arizona high-school graduates. At this information session, participants will hear from current Flinn Scholars and university staff about the opportunities and resources available to students who attend Arizona’s public honors colleges.


Important items for Class of 2023 applicants:

• SAT or ACT scores will be required this year—with no minimum score required.

• Application opens Monday, September 12.

• Student application deadline is Wednesday, October 19.

You can read more about the qualifications for the Flinn Scholars Program on our website. We hope you will join us on September 20 to learn more about this life-changing opportunity.
