New tuition assistance available from state

Posted on by Admin

Recently, a new type of scholarship has been developed by the Arizona Department of Education that allows students currently attending “failing” schools to transfer to schools and receive funding to assist with tuition.
These scholarships, known as the Empowerment Scholarship Account or ESA, are administrated through the Arizona Department of Education.
ESA staff at the Department of Education began accepting applications for the 2013/2014 school year on Jan. 1 and will continue accepting the forms through May 1. Information can be found at or by contacting Karla Wescott at (602) 364-1969 or at
Other students are eligible for the ESA program. Additional information is available at Arizona Department of Education Customer Support: (602) 542-3710 or through email at

This is very good initiative. I am Samuel Opio from Northern Uganda. I joined Gulu University Last year on a private sponsorship and also faced by sililar situation of raising school fees. I am seeking to know if I can share my Admission letter to atleast have some support to ease the study as this is the only answer to my dreams.
May God’s Blessing be upon you!
