ASCT is Arizona's oldest and most experienced scholarship organization, we were founded in 1993. We were first a private scholarship organization and now administrate both the individual and corporate tax credit dollars. All of our scholarship recipients have a clear financial need for the scholarship, and we have very strict rules - well above what the law requires - for how our organization is run. We take our responsibility to our donors very seriously and less than 10 percent of our funds are spent on administration. Arizona ranks 34th in the country for graduation rates, only 68% of our students graduate from high school. And only 56 cents on the dollar spent on education in Arizona ever makes it into the classroom.
