Scholarships & financial aid

A college degree will help you bridge the space between your aspirations and living out your dreams, whether you want to travel the world, save lives, provide for your family, or make an unforgettable difference in your community.

That's why the College of Agriculture, Life & Environmental Sciences offers more than $1 million in additional financial aid resources each year to help students like you achieve your college goals. This is on top of the aid available from the University of Arizona.

As a CALES student, you're eligible for nearly 200 scholarships reserved specifically for majors in our college. You don't have to have a perfect GPA either — you could qualify based on your campus and community involvement, personal background and experiences, or career goals. Award amounts vary up to a few thousand dollars.
