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.

During the information night, students and parents will learn more about the application criteria and strategies for success. There have been 14 Flinn Scholars from Yuma since the Flinn Foundation began awarding the scholarships in 1986.
