Congratulations to our 2021 Flinn Scholarship Semifinalists!
This year 6 Tempe Union students from Corona del Sol, Desert Vista, Mountain Pointe, and Tempe high schools are in the running for the Flinn Scholarship Program!
The Flinn Scholars Program received 951 applications for the 2021 scholarship from 209 high schools and 73 cities and towns in 13 of the 15 Arizona counties. About two-thirds of the Semifinalists are from the Phoenix metropolitan area. The Flinn Scholarship, which includes funding for tuition, housing, meals, and study abroad, is valued at more than $120,000.
Here is a complete list of our 2020-2021 Tempe Union High School District National Merit Semifinalists:

The 78 Semifinalists will be interviewed by three-person panels later this month. Following the Semifinalist interviews, about 40 Flinn Scholarship Finalists will advance to an interview in March with the five-person Selection Committee, which chooses approximately 20 students for the Flinn Scholarship to be announced in April 2021.
Congratulations again to our Flinn Scholars Semifinalists, way to represent TUHSD!
