Scholarships Reserved For CALS Majors

As a student in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, you're eligible for more than $700,000 in scholarships reserved specifically for majors in our college. That’s in addition to aid you may qualify for from the University of Arizona.

The majority of CALS scholarships are not based on a specific GPA. That means you don’t have to have a perfect GPA to apply. Awards may be added or changed at any time, and amounts vary each year depending on available funding. Remember to talk with an advisor regularly to get the most up-to-date information about all of your financial aid options and to find out how to apply.
