The APMA Scholarship Foundation was established to meet the educational needs of deserving employees and children of APMA member companies. This Foundation was created specifically to encourage and benefit students within Arizona’s petroleum industry. The Foundation was established as a non-profit Arizona corporation in 2007.
The Arizona Petroleum Marketers Association (APMA) has a significant history of supporting the principles of educational opportunity. The APMA Scholarship Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit Arizona Corporation to further these principles and to assist deserving employees and children of APMA member companies. Contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible to the extent that they meet the requirements of Federal and State tax laws. The Foundation provides scholarship awards to students attending college or vocational programs at any accredited post-secondary institution. The Foundation is publicly supported by generous contributions from APMA members, their communities, and those who share an affiliation with the petroleum industry.

A limited number of scholarships will be awarded each June to selected students. If the student meets eligibility requirements (maintenance of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average), the scholarship can be renewed. Awards will be granted without regard to race, color, religion, sex, disability, or national origin.
Since 2007, over $350,000 in scholarships have been awarded to deserving students. In 2017, eleven students received scholarships with a total value of $52,000 if eligibility requirements are met. In 2016, nine students received scholarships with a total value of $44,000, if renewed and if eligibility requirements are met.

Students interested in a scholarship for the following school year must complete the APMA Scholarship Foundation Application and send it electronically to APMA, along with all required application materials, no later than April 30, 2017. You will receive a confirmation email once your application has been received; please contact APMA if you do not receive this confirmation. Applicants are responsible for gathering and submitting all necessary information. It is important to answer all questions as completely as possible. All information received is considered confidential and is reviewed only by the Foundation’s Scholarship Board of Trustees.
Scholarship recipients are selected after a careful review of academic accomplishments; outside activities showing leadership and community involvement; the applicant’s statement of education and career goals; and the evaluation by a teacher, counselor, or supervisor. Scholarship applicants may be interviewed. Scholarship recipients will be notified of their award in June.
Checks will be mailed to each recipient’s home address upon proof of continued eligibility.
APMA reserves the right to review the terms and conditions of this scholarship program and to make changes at any time, including termination of the program. Previously approved scholarship awards will not be affected by subsequent changes to the program.
