As the Latino population continues to grow in the United States, the need for more Latino school administrators is greater than ever. In 2012 Latino children became the largest ethnic group in K-12 public schools in Arizona. However in 2016 only 15% of Administrative positions were held by Latino School Leaders in K-12 public schools in Arizona.

In honor of Dr. Alejandro Perez, founding member, AZALAS is offering a $10,000 scholarship this year, thanks to our partner, McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., who is co-sponsoring the scholarship for the third consecutive year ($5,000 from the Annual Alejandro Perez Memorial Golf Tournament and $5,000 from McCarthy). The scholarship will be awarded at the Fall Annual Conference.

Please use this form to submit your application to be considered for the Alejandro Perez Scholarship.

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE no later than Sunday, September 15th, 2019 by 4:00 p.m. Questions may be referred to Roxana Rico at
