As Benjamin Franklin once said, an investment in education always pays the best interest. Recognizing this, generous individuals, families and community groups in Yuma County have established and contributed to scholarship funds to support students in our county in pursuing their educational goals after high school.
In the spirit of increasing student access to financial support for higher education, the Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma has partnered with Arizona Western College and the University of Arizona Yuma to host its second annual scholarship night. Students, families and educators are invited to this free event at the Schoening Conference Center of Arizona Western College on the evening of Wednesday January 27, to learn about scholarship opportunities available to the students of Yuma County.
