Scholarships

Annually the Arizona 4-H Youth Foundation provides thousands of dollars in college scholarships to 4-H members and alumni. These scholarships provide relief from the ever-growing cost of a higher education. Our Scholarship Committee is comprised of a well-rounded group of individuals with 4-H history, education, business experience and a "give back to the community" spirit. Applicants are rated by the Scholarship Committee on financial need, ability, aptitude, grades, references, 4-H history & involvement along with completeness of applications meeting the criteria for the specific scholarships.

Use the skills you’ve gained through 4-H to build a fulfilling career. The University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences has 16 majors focused on business and commerce, health professions, helping professions, science and technology, sustainability, and traditional agriculture.
