About the Arizona Assurance Scholars: The program was created to increase the number of low-income, Arizona residents attending and graduating from the University of Arizona.  AZA provides both financial aid and support services; both of these work together to retain and graduate students. This is achieved through first-year transition programming, leadership building, career development, graduate/professional school preparation, and preparing for life after college. Learn more HERE
