TUCSON TEENS: Apply for a 2013 Flinn Scholarship [Deadline: Oct 19]

One of the best and most comprehensive scholarships available to Arizona high school students is the Flinn Scholarship.

Each selected Scholar receives a FULL scholarship from one of Arizona’s three public universities to cover the cost of tuition and fees for eight semesters. In addition, they receive more than $58,000 in additional support.

Altogether, each Flinn Scholar receives:

  • Generous funding covering nearly all tuition and mandatory fees, room and board, books, and supplies;
  • a three-week, all-expenses paid summer seminar after the freshman year (in the company of one’s entire class of Scholars);
  • additional funding for at least one more international study-travel experience and further professional development.

Just as important, each Flinn Scholar enjoys:

  • individual mentoring by top university faculty, community leaders, Foundation staff, and Flinn Scholar alumni with aligned interests;
  • supplemental intellectual, cultural and social activities developed exclusively for Flinn Scholars by both the Foundation and the universities;
  • personal encounters with global leaders in business, government, education, science, and the arts;
  • membership in a university honors program/college, with the many amenities it provides, such as small classes, guest lectures, and research experiences;
  • fellowship in a community of similarly high-achieving students.

Applicants for the Flinn Scholarship must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen by the time of entry to the university;
  • Be an Arizona resident for two years by the time of entry to the university;
  • Score a minimum 29 on the ACT or 1300 on the SAT I (counting critical reading and math sections only, not the writing section);
  • Attain at least a 3.5 grade-point average;
  • Rank in the top 5 percent of their graduating class;
  • Participate and demonstrate leadership in a variety of extracurricular activities.

Flinn Scholars are articulate, fun-loving, imperfect, hard-working, generous, creative, and curious.

They thrive in the classroom and maintain purposeful involvement in extracurricular activities. They assume leadership roles at their high schools and in their communities.

Sound like you (or someone you know)? Apply before October 19th.
