Mission: The Arizona Assurance Scholars Program provides academic, financial and social support for low-income Arizona residents as a way to ensure success, retention and graduation from the University of Arizona.

Vision: We seek to empower low-income students to become independent scholars and contributing members of society therefore improving the educational demographics  in the State of Arizona.

The Arizona Assurance Scholars Program at The University of Arizona (UA) is a financial aid program for low-income students in the state of Arizona. The program is designed to assist students by providing both financial aid and support services to successfully attain their bachelor's degree. The Arizona Assurance Program partners with college and departments on campus to provide scholars with comprehensive programming from their freshmen year through their senior year, so that they are able to have a smooth transition into and out of the university upon graduation. The mission of Arizona Assurance is achieved through first year transition programming, mentoring, leadership, and career development, graduate/professional school preparation and cultural enrichment.
