Dysart Education Foundation Scholarship Application

Students graduating from the four high schools in the Dysart School District including Sundown Alternative High School are encouraged to
apply. Please check out this helpful info TUTORIAL before you fill out the scholarship application.

Donor awards favor the two-year community colleges, trade school or university tuition using the link below:
https://www.grantinterface.com/Home/Logon?urlkey=azcfscholar. You will need to create a username and password to begin the process. Students must answer “yes” to both FAFSA eligibility and Financial Need consideration, as well as meeting all the other criteria. If anyone answers “no” they will not sort into the DEF scholarships.

Remember, read everything carefully, take your time filling in the application and talk to your counselor if you need assistance!

Student scholarship recipients are responsible for keeping ACF informed of all current information concerning home address, emails, class schedules, GPA, and transcripts. A separate link will be provided via email from DEF to students in December 2023, May 2024, and December 2024 to update the organization and its scholarship donors each semester. Failure to do provide required documents may result in the loss of the scholarship.

Thank you!
