As area high school seniors start their last term and are making plans for college, Cox will award ten Arizona seniors with a $3,500 Cox Diversity Scholarship.
Cox has a hundred-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.
The competitive scholarships require applicants to be on track for graduation with a minimum 2.5-grade point average, provide demonstrated leadership and community service as well as submit an essay focused on a significant leader from their respective diverse community.
To apply for a Cox Diversity Scholarship, students should link to the application here: www.azfoundation.org/scholarships

The deadline to apply is March 1, 2022.
“At Cox, inclusion, diversity and equity are part of our core values. Over the past nine years, we are thrilled to have awarded more than $300,000 to students in our southwest region, including Arizona. Helping students achieve their educational goals helps make our communities stronger. We’re proud to connect families to opportunities like this one, and many others,” said Susan Anable, Vice President of Government and Public Affairs, Cox Southwest Region.
In 2021, Chloe Hiller, a new grad from Arcadia High School, received a Cox Diversity Scholarship to help her pursue her dream to become a news producer.
“Being awarded this scholarship not only reduces my financial burden, but it further motivates me to stay committed to working hard as I pursue a degree in Journalism at The University of Arizona,” said scholar Hiller.
Cox has partnered with local Valley organizations: YWCA Metro Phoenix, ACEL, Be A Leader Foundation, Greater Phoenix Urban League and Valle del Sol to make these scholarships available to Valley seniors.
