Financial benefits

The Arizona Teachers Academy (ATA) scholarship covers tuition and mandatory fees after a student has accepted all other non-loan aid such as institutional scholarships, federal Pell grants, and other private scholarships.

Expectations of ATA scholarship recipients

Each student who graduates from ASU having received an ATA scholarship will be expected to teach in an Arizona public school for a length of time equal to the number of years the student received the ATA scholarship. For example, if you receive an ATA scholarship each year over a two-year period, you must then teach a total of two consecutive school years at an Arizona public school.

If a student does not meet these requirements, the tuition scholarship will convert to a loan, and the student will be required to repay the total amount of the tuition scholarship. Full requirements and conditions are explained in the Arizona Teachers Academy Tuition Scholarship Agreement.
