    We are excited to announce three (3) scholarship openings which will be presented at the AZALAS Winter Conference. Please see below for information on how to apply for each scholarship!

    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, and sponsored by McCarthy, AZALAS is offering a $10,000 scholarship. One requirement for this scholarship is that the applicant needs to have been accepted into a Doctoral Program in Education Leadership.

    The scholarship will be awarded at the November 2022 Annual Conference.

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

    The Ben Barcon Scholarship is funded by donations from various activities sponsored by AZALAS. AZALAS recognizes Latino administrators for their leadership by providing assistance toward an advanced degree in education. The top recipient will receive a one-time $5,000 scholarship award. The scholarship will be made payable to the recipient and will be awarded at the November 2022 Annual Conference.

    Please use this form to submit your application to be considered for the Ben Barcon Scholarship.

    Valley Schools Management Group, AZALAS Signature Sponsor, is generously providing a $5,000 scholarship to an AZALAS Administrator pursuing an advanced degree.

    Please use this form to submit your application to be considered for the Valley Schools Scholarship.

    We look forward to receiving your scholarship submissions!

    Thank you – AZALAS
