The Arizona Association for Lifelong Learning offers scholarships to members of up to $500 per year to be used to attend or participate in conferences, presentations, workshops or other professional learning activities primarily related to the instruction of adults in basic skills, high school equivalency, English language instruction, and/or Civics and Citizenship. Applications to attend activities which would be considered outside those related to adult instruction; i.e. elementary or secondary levels, must provide a rationale on how attendance/participation in the activity specifically relates to and how you would use it in your adult instruction. Scholarships are not available to pay a student's college costs.
