The Arizona Health Care Foundation is now accepting scholarship applications for the 2021/2022 school year. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, March 24th at 12:00 pm. The intent of the AHCF Scholarship Program is to assist staff employed in member skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities, so they can pursue a formal education in health care and long term care.

The Foundation has awarded thousands of dollars in scholarship funds over the years, with the average award between $1,200 and $1,500. Applicants must work in an AHCA member skilled nursing facility or assisted living community in good standing. For more information about the scholarship program, please contact Krysten Dobson at 602-265-5331 or
