The AASRA Foundation exists to aid in the education of future teachers by awarding scholarships to eligible students in the colleges of education at state supported universities in Arizona. It is a 501 (C) 3 organization and all donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
Anyone may make contributions to help in the education of future teachers and may indicate that the donation is to honor or memorialize someone. Each year the foundation board determines the amount of the scholarships to be awarded.
The recipients must have senior or graduate standing and major in teacher education. The foundation is run by volunteers selected by the AASRA Board. Each member serves a five-year term. They are held responsible for the growth of the funds and for making decisions about scholarship recipients.
