The Mesa College scholarship program enables students to complete their studies, and is one of the keys to ensuring student success through financial support. Scholarships range in value from $250 – $2,500. Scholarship opportunities are available to all Mesa students. Eligibility is the only limitation on the number of scholarships for which you can apply. Recipients will receive a maximum of three awards (the three highest in monetary value).
