Scholarship Opportunity

The Phoenix Chapter Association of Government Accountants (AGA) is pleased to offer two annual scholarship opportunities for eligible undergraduate/graduate students to apply for a college scholarship. There is one scholarship awarded for $1,000, which can be used for student educational expenses and a possible second place award for $500.00. The Scholarship recipient is also awarded a one year Special Student Membership in the Phoenix Chapter AGA which will entitle him or her to attend chapter meetings and educational events, receive chapter and national publications, access job opportunities through AGA’s online Job Bank, enhance professional development, network with other professionals, and the many other benefits of becoming an AGA member.

We are pleased to announce that we awarded two scholarships for the 2017-2018 program year. Getzamany Aragon was awarded $1,000 and Elliana Grow was awarded $500.


Getzamany Aragon obtained a bachelor’s degree from the University of New Mexico in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting in 2014. It was during that time, she found a love for governmental accounting. In 2016 she was able to immerse herself in this new interest by joining the Accounting team at the AZ State Department of Education. Since then she has been promoted to a Manager and is now working on her Master’s Degree in Accounting at Grand Canyon University. When she completes this journey, she will also have earned her CPA. She is eager to join AGA and explore even more possibilities in how she can make a positive impact on others.

Elliana is from Olympia, Washington and currently attends NAU. She is a member of the Business Leadership Program in the W.A. Franke College of Business and has served as Vice President of Academic Development for Alpha Omicron Pi, Theta Omega Chapter. She is following in the footsteps of her uncle and working on a degree in Accounting, with a minor in Political Science. She is very excited to be a part of AGA and make a difference in public accounting.

The next available scholarship opportunity will be for the 2018-2019 program year and is due December 31, 2018.  Applications, when available, can be found here. We look forward to and appreciate your participation in our scholarship program.
