The Flinn Scholars Program, which offers to Arizona high-school seniors one of the most prestigious undergraduate merit scholarships in the nation, will host five informational sessions around the state in March and April to share the benefits of the 2018 Flinn Scholarship and how to build a strong application.

In case you were unable to attend, a presentation about the 2018 Flinn Scholarship is available.

Honors-college deans and admissions staff from Arizona’s three public universities will be present at each session. Flinn Scholars Program staff and current Scholars will also be available to answer questions and share their experiences.

The five events, which include four weeknights and one Sunday-afternoon session, will be held at Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and the University of Arizona, as well as the Arizona Science Center in downtown Phoenix.

These sessions are strongly encouraged but attendance is not required in order to apply for the Flinn Scholarship. The information will be especially valuable for high-school juniors who will be applying for the Flinn Scholarship later this year and graduating in spring 2018.

A presentation about the 2018 Flinn Scholarship is available for those who were unable to attend the sessions.

The application for the 2018 Flinn Scholarship will be available at www.flinnscholars.org in late August. The deadline to apply will be in October.

The Flinn Scholarship Program provides an unparalleled package for undergraduate study at an Arizona public university for 20 of Arizona’s highest-achieving high school seniors each year. The merit-based scholarship program covers the cost of tuition, fees, room and board and at least two study-abroad experiences, as well as financial support for an off-campus professional internship. The overall financial package is valued at more than $115,000.

There are many other benefits that go beyond the financial package. We encourage applicants to learn more about the Benefits and Requirements as well as International Travel and the Internship Program.

Students with application questions can email application@flinn.org, call (602) 744-6802, or talk with their school’s guidance counselor. In addition, application tips and FAQs are available here.

The Flinn Scholars Program is operated by the Flinn Foundation Scholarship Program LLC and supported by the Flinn Foundation, a private, nonprofit, grantmaking organization based in Phoenix.
