SALT Center Scholarship Awards
The SALT Center offers a range of need-based scholarship awards to help compensate for the fees associated with participating in the program. The majority of our scholarship awards are funded by donations from our generous supporters to ensure that deserving students have access to the SALT Center regardless of their family's financial status.
Incoming freshmen, transfer students, and currently enrolled students are welcome to apply. The scholarship award application and additional required materials are available below.

For incoming students who are enrolled in the SALT Center and who qualify as Arizona Assurance scholars, SALT will provide a fee waiver to cover the SALT Center program fees for the first academic year of the scholarship. Students will need to apply for a SALT need-based scholarship each academic year after the SALT Center fee waiver expires.
