AWC Foundation scholarship cycle to begin Feb. 15

Yuma, AZ (January 13, 2022) – In an effort to eliminate financial barriers and make college accessible for all, the Arizona Western College Foundation has a wide variety of scholarships available.

“Like the diverse student body at AWC, we have a diverse offering of scholarship opportunities. We encourage everyone to apply for scholarships through our user-friendly scholarship portal,” said Laura Knaresboro, AWC Foundation Executive Director.

Current and incoming students can complete one general scholarship application to qualify for any applicable scholarships awarded by the AWC Foundation. Scholarships are available in major-specific areas as well as for general education or transfer students.

“There is often a misconception about GPA and financial aid status when it comes to applying for scholarships, but each award has different criteria. Spending 30-40 minutes of your time could unlock various scholarship opportunities. Go for it!” said Gladys Anaya, AWC Foundation Coordinator of Development and Alumni Relations.

The AWC Foundation scholarship cycle opens Tuesday, February 15, and runs until Friday, April 1.
