The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form you need to fill out if you are seeking financial assistance from the federal government to attend college. Each year, over 13 million students who file the FAFSA get more than $120 billion in grants, work-study, and low-interest loans from the U.S. Department of education.

Financial Grants

AZTTI provides a list of grant and financial aid possibilities as a resource only. Each resource has its own criteria and process for approving you to receive funding and approving AZTTI as a school and or program of study. These resources are provided as information only and should not be relied upon to pay for your course at AZTTI or to represent the entire list of possibilities for you to gain funding for the specific course you are seeking to be admitted into. Your own initiative will be the key ingredient in getting your education funded. Our past students have received funding from their employer, religious organizations, community and social outreach programs, family/friends, as well as a wide variety of other sources.

The Arizona Health Care Foundation is now accepting scholarship
applications all year long. The intent of the AHCF Scholarship Program
is to assist staff employed in member skilled nursing facilities and
assisted living communities, so they can pursue a formal education in
health care and long term care.

The Foundation has awarded thousands of dollars in scholarship funds
over the years, with the average award between $1,200 and $1,500.
Applicants must work in an AHCA member skilled nursing facility or
assisted living community in good standing. For more information about
the scholarship program, please contact Krysten Dobson at 602-265-5331
or kdobson@azhca.org. AZTTI is a participating member of AHCA Works.

AHCA WORKS is a program designed to strengthen and support workforce
development in long term care throughout the state of Arizona. We hope
to recruit new and talented individuals interested in becoming Certified
Nursing Assistants (CNAs) in skilled nursing facilities and Caregivers
in assisted living centers. AHCA WORKS will place interested candidates
in training programs, fully funding the education necessary to become
certified to serve on the frontline of long term care. They will also
assist in job placement and provide ongoing support to individuals
trained through the AHCA Works Program.

Becoming a CNA is an incredibly rewarding career. AZTTI + AHCA are
seeking individuals who are capable, compassionate, and reliable and
want to make a difference in our profession.

Please consider this great opportunity to receive tuition paid certification in skilled nursing.

Does AZTTI accept FAFSA?

AZTTI has several different options for our programs; however, FAFSA is not one of them.

FAFSA stands for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This is also known as Title IV Funding. The funding gets its name from Title IV of the U.S. Higher Education Act. This act enables federal funding programs to be used for individuals requiring aid to help pay for higher education.

Learn more about FAFSA, and what it encompasses

Higher Education is classified as Post-Secondary education, or education received after High School Graduation. These funds were approved to help leverage the cost of Universities and Colleges which can be anywhere from $30k-$100K+.

Since AZTTI is a vocational trainer, our programs are shorter in duration and less expensive in comparison to completing an Associates’s, Bachelors’s, or higher level of education. Thus, Title IV funding is not intended to fund such programs. They are better utilized for the levels previously mentioned.
