Applicant Eligibility

Applicants must:

  • Be female.
  • Be at least 18 years of age.
  • Demonstrate financial need.
     Be a resident of an East Valley community. For the purposes of this program the East Valley consists of Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek, Apache Junction, and unincorporated areas within these community boundaries.
  • Be enrolled in, or have been accepted to, a vocational/skills training program or a community college associate’s degree program.
  • Awards will be given for public institutions–specifically East Valley Institute of Technology, Chandler-Gilbert Community College, Mesa Community College, or Rio Salado College. Expanding to additional institutions is currently under consideration by the Positive Paths Executive Board.
  • Awards will be made only to students seeking certificates or degrees. This program does not pertain to those who wish to take special interest courses or coursework not related to certificate or degree completion.
  • Awards may also be given to students who do not yet have a high school diploma and wish to pursue their GED. Note that not having a high school diploma or GED will prohibit an applicant from receiving federal financial aid, but we still ask those applicants to demonstrate financial need via completion of the FAFSA form.
  • Show aptitude or the promise for success. Recipients may plan to attend school full-time or part-time, but, if selected for an award, must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Positive Paths Scholarship Committee that they have a viable plan for certificate or degree completion.
