Arizona’s three state universities – Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona – in partnership with the Arizona-based non-profit organization Live the Solution – are launching AZ Earn to Learn, an innovative need-based financial aid program that pairs $3.1 million in scholarships with more than 700 students from low-income families. Participation in AZ Earn to Learn includes a savings plan and completion of financial literacy and college readiness training.
AZ Earn to Learn is funded with $1.55 million in federal grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Assets for Independence program provided to the three state universities, each of which also will provide matching funds. This is the first time in the federal agency’s history that state universities have applied for and received matching funds for a scholarship program of this nature.
