AWC wins $2,000 student scholarship from CampusWorks

Strategic higher education consulting firm celebrates 20 years by donating $40,000 in student scholarships to 20 different colleges and universities across the U.S. and Canada

Yuma, AZ (November 21, 2019) – Arizona Western College is the most recent winner of a $2,000 scholarship from strategic higher education consulting firm CampusWorks. In celebration of the company’s 20th anniversary, CampusWorks has launched a scholarship giveaway to support student success—the firm has pledged to donate $2,000 scholarships to 20 different colleges and universities across the United States and Canada, providing a total of $40,000 in financial support for students in need.

Founded in 1999, CampusWorks’ vision is to improve society by making higher education accessible to everyone, and offering these scholarships is a big step toward making that vision a reality. “After two decades working directly with institutions, we see firsthand the challenges many students face,” said CampusWorks CEO Liz Murphy. “We want to do our part to ensure that financial need does not prevent anyone from pursuing a quality education.”

As the cost of higher education continues to rise in many areas, more students are relying upon scholarship support to achieve their educational goals. “AWC is fortunate to have dedicated trustees, including those that attended the ACCT conference in San Francisco. During the event we were lucky enough to win a drawing for a $2,000 scholarship from CampusWorks that will be used to benefit our students,” said Arizona Western College President, Dr. Daniel Corr.
