Page High School senior Kaya Dickson learned in December that she was one of 39 finalists for the Flinn Scholarship.

Dickson was one of nearly 1,100 Arizona students who applied for the prestigious scholarship last autumn. The Flinn Foundation will award 20 scholarships this year. The Flinn Scholarship, which includes funding for tuition, housing, meals and study abroad, is valued at more than $120,000.

In March, Dickson – along with the other 38 candidates – will meet with a five-person interview committee. The extensive interview process will take place over two days. The Flinn Foundation will announce the 20 scholarship recipients in April. 

“All of the 39 Flinn finalists are very deserving of the Flinn Scholarship. We are impressed with this diverse group of extremely bright and talented students who are working to better their schools, local communities, and the state of Arizona,” said Anne Lassen, Flinn Foundation vice president of scholarship and education initiatives. “A difficult choice lies ahead for our selection committee.”
