Cox 2023 Diversity Scholars offers $35K in scholarship grants
Staff Reports | Digital Free Press
Soon it will be decision time for area high school seniors as college acceptances come in and the reality of paying for college becomes clear.
Cox wants to give a boost to diverse students by providing (10) $3,500 Cox Diversity Scholarship opportunities. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2023.
Cox has a 125-year track record of supporting youth and education programs in the communities that Cox serves and hopes these scholarships will help form future Arizona leaders with rich cultural backgrounds, officials there say.
“I am so proud to be a Cox Diversity Scholar and fully represent my Asian, Mexican, and Native American heritage,” said Liv Shultz, who is a 2022 Cox Diversity Scholar. “With this scholarship, Cox is taking away some of the burdens of paying for college and, ultimately, giving me the opportunity to strengthen my community as a nurse.”
Susan Anable, Arizona VP at Cox Communications, says providing education is a keystone priority at the utility provider.
“Ensuring that diverse students have access to higher education will create stronger communities throughout Arizona,” she said in a prepared statement. “We know that the cost of college can be prohibitive, and the challenge can be stressful for students and their families. We’re proud to connect families to opportunities like this one.”
