The program, in partnership with Arizona’s three state universities, provides enriched educational offerings that expand Scholars’ life and career options and create the kind of stimulating, intellectually challenging environment that students might find at the nation’s most selective colleges.
Total dollar value, including the cash value of tuition provided by the universities, exceeds $100,000.
