Earn Scholarships and Confidence
The Miss America Organization is a not-for-profit organization that has maintained a tradition for many decades of empowering young women. Scholarships have been the cornerstone of the Miss America program since 1945 when Bess Myerson was the first Miss America to receive a scholarship from the Organization.
Participating in the Miss City of Maricopa Scholarship Organization not only helps contestants through college and prepare for a career, it also provides an opportunity to gain additional life experience, working on issues of importance to society, enhancing personal and professional skills and developing performance-related and other talents. Participants in Miss City of Maricopa’s scholarship program begin the process of becoming eligible to compete in the Miss America system in which ten of thousands of young women compete to be national finalists.
