Request information

A tuition scholarship. Days filled with meaning.

With an Arizona Teachers Academy at ASU tuition scholarship, your tuition and fees are covered when you complete an initial teacher certification program and fulfill a commitment to teach in Arizona public schools after graduation.

Apply/Request information


ATA at ASU tuition scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis for students who meet the following eligibility requirements:

 ✓ Have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

✓ Are admitted to an ASU program that leads to teacher certification, or will seek alternative teaching certification upon graduation,  as any one of the following:

  • an undergraduate student with priority for junior standing or higher

  • a graduate student enrolled in a master’s degree or a non-degree teacher certification program

  • a non-degree seeking graduate student who is taking courses in order to satisfy the requirements for teaching dual enrollment courses. Learn more about this option.

Financial benefits

ATA tuition scholarships are available pending the continuation of funding from the state of Arizona. The 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. Public schools include any Arizona public school, Arizona charter school, any other schools that support students from public schools (i.e. AZ School for Deaf & the Blind), and Federal schools in Arizona Indian nations.  

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. 

How to apply

You must be newly admitted or currently enrolled at Arizona State University in order to receive an Arizona Teachers Academy at ASU tuition scholarship. Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible students.

  • If you are a newly admitted student email asueducation@asu.edu for next steps.
  • If you are a currently enrolled student, please submit the form below to apply for the scholarship.
