Scholarship Opportunities

In the Fall of 2021, the City of Avondale teamed up with Estrella Mountain Community College and the Maricopa Community College Foundation to leverage American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds and created a first-of-its-kind collaborative scholarship opportunity. In response to the industries hit hardest by the pandemic, the Avondale EDGE Scholarship was created to help students pursuing careers in the food and healthcare industries, earning degrees in Culinary Arts and Nursing. Avondale businesses are able to offer this scholarship opportunity as a recruitment tool for their incoming and existing workforce and the community colleges are able to facilitate a thriving education-to-workforce pipeline.
