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.
“Helping students achieve their educational goals helps make our communities stronger. Cox knows that paying for college can be stressful for students and their family. 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.
Cox will present $35,000 in scholarships to students in the Valley and Southern Arizona in partnership with YWCA Maricopa County, ACEL, Be a Leader Foundation, NAACP Maricopa Branch, One n Ten, Black Chamber of Arizona, Chicanos Por La Causa, Southern Arizona Aids Foundation, Women’s Foundation of Arizona and YWCA Southern Arizona.
